Hans-Dieter Jakubke studied Chemistry at the Halle University, Germany. After finishing his PhD, he moved to the University of Prague, Czechoslovakia, as a postdoctoral fellow with Professor Rudinger. As from 1970 he worked in and taught peptide chemistry at the University of Leipzig for several decades where he assumed the position as Professor of Biochemistry in 1977. He was director of the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Leipzig for four years until his retirement in 1997. He is also an experienced writer, having authored several popular German language textbooks and encyclopedias on various aspects of chemistry and biochemistry.
Norbert Sewald studied Chemistry at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, where he also obtained his PhD degree. After postdoctoral work with J. E. Baldwin in Oxford, UK, he became an Assitant Professor at Leipzig University. Since 1999 he is full Professor at the University of Bielefeld where he holds the chair in Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry. His main scientific interest is in peptide chemistry and bioactive peptides. Together with Hans-Dieter Jakubke, he has written a highly acclaimed textbook on peptide chemistry and biology.
