"Karl-Friedrich Fischbach"

Karl-Friedrich Fischbach studied from 1968 - 1970 biology in Freiburg and 1970/71 biochemistry at the Imperial College London, where he obtained 1971 the Diploma of Membership of Imperial College (DIC) in biochemistry. Back in Freiburg, he wrote 1973 his Diploma thesis supervised by Prof. Dr. Hanns-Christof Spatz about transfection of Bacillus subtilis. Fischbach completed his dissertation in the same lab in 1976 and moved thereafter to Würzburg, where he became the first assistent of Martin Heisenberg (1976-1984) at the "Lehrstuhl für Genetik des Instituts für Genetik und Mikrobiologie der Universität Würzburg". He habilitated 1983 in genetics. From 1984 - 1985 he stayed as Heisenberg-Stipendiat in Würzburg, until he obtained a call in 1985 to the institut of biology III of the Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg, Germany. There he is professor for Biophysics and Molecular Biology. He will retire in 2013.
The main achievements of Fischbach are anatomical description of neurons in the Drosophila brain and the detection of the first members of the IRM protein family that play a role in cell-cell recognition.
