Anne S. Ulrich (Born December 31, 1966 in Hamburg, Germany) is a German chemist. She is the director of the Institute of Biological Interfaces (IBG-2) and Chair of Biochemistry at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
She studied chemistry at the University of Oxford - continued her doctoral work in the laboratory of Anthony Watts - held subsequent research positions as an EMBO-Fellow with Hartmut Oschkinat at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg and as a Liebig-Fellow with Felix Wieland at the University of Heidelberg - became Associate Professor at the University of Jena - until she moved her group in 2002 to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Her research focuses on the structural and functional analysis of biomembranes by solid state NMR. The main systems of interest are:Mechanisms of membrane-active peptides with antimicrobial, cell-penetrating, fusogenic, or cytotoxic functions
Helix-helix interactions of transmembrane segments from signalling receptors, ion channels, and protein translocation systems
Self-assembly of amyloidogenic peptides and "charge-zipper" proteins in membranes
Ulrich comes from a family with strong scientific background.
