Dmitrij Frishman received a M.S. in Biomedical Electronics from the Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University in 1984 and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1991. An Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship he received at the end of 1991 allowed him to join the Pat Argos group at the Biocomputing Department of EMBL in Heidelberg, where he pursued postdoctoral training in structural bioinformatics until 1996. He subsequently joined the Munich Information Center for Protein Sequences as a senior scientist and later became Deputy Director of the Institute for Bioinformatics at the German Research Center for Health and Environment. In 1997, he cofounded a bioinformatics company called Biomax Informatics AG, which provides computational solutions for better decision making and knowledge management in the life science industry. Since 2003, Dmitrij Frishman has been Professor for Bioinformatics at the Technical University of Munich. His current research interests focus on protein structure prediction, analysis of protein interactions, cancer bioinformatics and mRNA evolution.
