Peter Schuck received his Ph.D. degree in biophysics from the Johann-Wolfgang Goethe-Unversity Frankfurt, Germany, in 1994. For his dissertation, he was characterizing the oligomeric state and heterogeneous interactions of the detergent-solubilized band 3 protein from the erythrocyte membrane, and developing multi-wavelength analytical ultracentrifugation techniques. From 1994 to 1997, he was a Visiting Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Allen Minton in the Laboratory of Biochemistry and Genetics, NIDDK, at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, where he worked on problems in optical biosensing and sedimentation velocity as tools for the study of protein interactions. From 1997 to 2003, he was a Visiting Associate and Staff Scientist in the Division of Bioengineering and Physical Science, OD, at the National Institutes of Health, developing and applying various biophysical methods for the study of macromolecular interactions. Since 2003, he is Chief of the Protein Biophysics Section, now located in LBPS at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. Dr. Schuck is an Editorial Board member of The Protein Journal, Faculty Member in the Experimental Biophysical Methods section of the Structural Biology faculty of F1000 Biology, and editor of the book Protein Interactions - Biophysical Approaches for the Study of Complex Reversible Systems (Protein Reviews Vol. 5). He is organizer of the semiannual workshop on “Hydrodynamic and Thermodynamic Analysis of Macromolecules with sedfit and sedphat”, and author of a several widely used public domain computational biophysical analysis programs.
