Dieter Willbold, Ph.D.
Director and Full Professor at Forschungszentrum Jülich


Dieter Willbold studied biochemistry in Tübingen (Germany), Bayreuth (Germany) and Boulder (Colorado, USA). He completed his PhD in 1994 at the University of Bayreuth. After some more years in Bayreuth and a couple of research visits, e.g. at the Sackler School of Medicine of the Tel-Aviv University, he was leading his junior research group at the Institute for Molecular Biotechnology in Jena, Germany. In 2001 Willbold became an associate Professor at the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf. Since 2004, he is full professor at the Institute of Physical Biology in Düsseldorf and director of the Institute of Complex Systems at the Forschungszentrum Jülich. His main interests are protein interactions with physiological and artificial ligands, high resolution structural biology, neurodegeneration, neuropathic pain and autophagy. Since quite some years, Willbold is very much engaged in drug development and clinical trials in Alzheimer’s disease and has co-founded the company Priavoid in 2017.
