Curriculum Vitae

Donald Hilvert has been full Professor at the Organic Chemistry Laboratory of ETH Zurich since October 1, 1997. His group is developing general strategies for the design of proteins with customized catalytic properties. The aim is to gain a better understanding of the molecular origins of the catalytic powers of natural enzymes and their selectivity. Beyond that artificial biocatalysts may be useful in research, medicine and industry.


Professor Hilvert was born in 1956 in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, and obtained his B.A. from Brown University, Rhode Island, in 1978. He earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University, New York, in 1983, with a dissertation under the supervision of Prof. R. Breslow. Following a postdoctoral work with Prof. E.T. Kaiser at Rockefeller University, New York, he joined the Scripps Research Institute as an assistant professor in 1986, where he was named associate professor in 1989 and full professor in 1993. He came to ETH Zurich as full Professor of Organic Chemistry in 1997.


Donald Hilvert was awarded the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 1991-93, the Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award of the ACS in 1992, and the Pfitzer Award in Enzyme Chemistry in 1994.
