Hi, my name is Joachim Heberle. My research interests are in the structure and function of membrane proteins and in the methodologies to investigate these … when I have time. Mostly, I am an adminstrative slave. The remainder of my time, I try hard to feed (i.e. raise funds) and comfort my coworkers (i.e. discuss science and give advice). I am not supposed to be a professor in Physics because I received my University education in Chemistry. However, my colleagues and students are so generous to tolerate my ignorance. I am serving the scientific community as an associate editor of Chemical Reviews and as one of the Ombudsman of Science in Germany.
