Thomas Söllner received his Ph.D. at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany in 1991. During his Ph.D. thesis in Dr. Dr. Neupert’s laboratory at the Institute for Physiological Chemistry, he analyzed the molecular machinery conferring the recognition and transport of mitochondrial precursor proteins across the outer mitochondrial membrane. As a postdoctoral fellow In Dr. Rothman’s laboratory in the Cellular and Biophysics Program at the Sloan-Kettering Institute in New York, he identified the SNARE proteins, which are the basic membrane fusion machinery. As an Assistant Member (1998) and then as an Associate Member (2004) at the Cell Biology Program at the Sloan-Kettering Institute, he further analyzed and characterized SNAREs that function at various intracellular transport steps. Since 2005, Thomas Söllner is Full Professor at the Heidelberg University Biochemistry Center in Germany studying the molecular mechanisms underlying regulated exocytosis using reconstituted liposomes and cellular assays with a focus on protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions.
