Biographical information

Göran Widmalm was born in Södertälje (Sweden) in 1958. He obtained his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at Stockholm University in 1988 working with Prof. P.-E. Jansson. His thesis work dealt with structural determination of polysaccharides using a large arsenal of chemical methods, NMR spectroscopy and the development of a computerized approach to structural determination of oligo- and polysaccharides (CASPER). Thereafter he was a post-doctoral fellow at the Biophysics Laboratory, CBER/FDA in Bethesda, MD, USA where he carried out molecular dynamics simulations of biomolecules with Dr. Richard W. Pastor and subsequent NMR spectroscopy studies with Dr. William M. Egan and Dr. R. A. Byrd. He returned to Stockholm University as an assistant professor and became Docent in 1991. Between 1995 and 1998 he was an associate professor and since 1999 he holds a position as full professor of Bioorganic chemistry. His research interests span from structural investigation of complex carbohydrate systems including also bioinformatics (ECODAB) to ligand-receptor interaction studies employing a combination of NMR spectroscopy and computational chemistry techniques. Recipient of Ulla and Stig Holmquist Science Prize in Organic Chemistry, 2018.
