Tobias Stauber studied biochemistry at the Ruhr University Bochum and the University of Witten/Herdecke with research stays at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, and the Yale University School of Medicine, CT, USA. He then completed his doctorate at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg. Subsequently, he conducted research at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) and the Leibniz Research Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) in Berlin and habilitated at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Since 2014 he has lead the working group Cellular Biochemistry at the Free University of Berlin, where he also worked as a Privatdozent. In October 2019, he joined the MSH Medical School Hamburg as Professor for Biochemistry.

Teaching Activities

Tobias Stauber received an education in didactics from the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. From 2014 to 2017 he was involved in teaching in the human medicine degree program and the master's program Molecular Medicine. Since 2015, he has also lectured in the master's program Biochemistry at the Free University and taught biochemistry and molecular biology for students of bioinformatics. In 2017, he received the prize for good teaching from the students of biochemistry at the Free University of Berlin. At the MSH Medical School Hamburg, he teaches chemistry and biochemistry/molecular biology in the Department Human Medicine.

Research Interest

The main interest of Tobias Stauber’s research lies in molecular cell biology, with a focus on the regulation of ion transport processes and their importance for cellular physiology. The often medically relevant questions are approached with a broad spectrum of molecular biological, biochemical and biophysical methods. The research group of Tobias Stauber collaborates with many laboratories within Germany and abroad. The research is supported by extramural funding, such as from the DFG and the BMBF, and the results are published in high-impact journals. Furthermore, Tobias Stauber is a member of several scientific societies, such as the Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM), for which he is a contact person in Hamburg. He is a member of editorial boards and acts as an ad hoc reviewer for numerous journals and funding agencies.
