Julien Orts studied Physics and Biophysics and graduated in 2010 jointly from the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory under the guidance of Prof. Carlogmano and Prof. Griesinger. Julien joined the BioNMR laboratory at the ETH Zurich led by Prof. Riek, first as a post-doc and then as a junior group leader. Since 2021 he is an Assistant Professor at the University of Vienna in the Division of Pharmaceutical Chemistry. 

His laboratory is focusing on Drug Discovery by advanced NMR methods, including integrated methods for fast protein-ligand complex structure determination, NMR based drug design, protein allostery, and thermodynamics of protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions.

We apply these techniques to therapeutically relevant receptors in-house or in collaborations with pharmaceutical industries.
