Bonhoeffer, Sebastian, Prof. Dr.
Sebastian Bonhoeffer has been Full Professor in Theoretical Biology at the ETH Zurich since 1 July 2005.
Prof. Bonhoeffer was born in Tübingen, Germany, on October 6, 1965. After studying Music in Basel, he studied Physics in Munich and Vienna and then moved to Oxford, where he did his PhD with Martin Nowak and Robert May at the Department of Zoology. After his PhD he stayed in Oxford as a Research Fellow of Wolfson College and worked as a visiting scientist with David Ho at the Rockefeller University, New York. Prior to his appointment as SNF Research Professor at the ETH in 2001, he was junior group leader at the Friedrich Miescher Institut in Basel.
His research focuses on using population biological models to understand fundamental biological processes. He has worked extensively on mathematical models describing the population dynamics of virus infections within infected individuals. Such models have provided important insights into the pathogenesis of viral infections and HIV infection in particular.
