Rebecca Wade's Biography

Rebecca Wade, Group Leader, Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies

Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS), Schloss-Wolfsbrunnenweg 35, 69118 Heidelberg, and Zentrum für Molekulare Biologie Heidelberg (ZMBH), Heidelberg University, Germany
Rebecca Wade leads the “Molecular and Cellular Modeling” group at HITS, a private research institute in Heidelberg carrying out multidisciplinary research in the computational sciences. She holds a professorship in “Computational Structural Biology” at the University of Heidelberg.
Rebecca Wade studied physics at the University of Oxford (B.A. Hons. 1985) and received her doctoral degree (D. Phil.) in molecular biophysics in 1988. She then did postdoctoral research at the universities of Houston and Illinois. From 1992 to 2001, she was a group leader at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg. She has led the “Molecular and Cellular Modelling” group since 2001, initially at EML Research and since 2010 at HITS. Her research group works on the development and application of computer-aided methods to model and simulate biomolecular interactions. Her research has resulted in over 150 scientific publications, as well as software and web servers that are used world-wide. She is a section editor of BMC Biophysics and an associate editor of the Journal of Molecular Recognition. She was the recipient of the 2004 Hansch Award of the QSAR and Modelling Society.
