Stefan Broer, Ph.D., studied biochemistry at the University of Tuebingen in Germany from 1981 to 1986. He was awarded his Ph.D. in 1991, investigating amino acid uptake release in Corynebacterium glutamicum. After working as a research fellow at the University of Illinois at Chicago, he was appointed as junior faculty member at the University of Tuebingen where he started his research on amino acid homeostasis in brain cells. In 2000 Broer moved to the Australian National University where he is working on the role of amino acids in metabolic diseases and amino acid homeostasis in mammalian cells and organisms. In recent years, Broer’s lab has investigated amino acid transporters as a target to treat type 2 diabetes and cancer.
