Hygiene at home - of men and microbes
Born in Wuppertal, Dirk Bockmühl studied biology in Dusseldorf and did his PhD in microbiology on the human pathogenic fungus Candida albicans.
Professionally, he remained in Dusseldorf working in various positions at Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, first as a laboratory manager in corporate research, then, after a brief excursion into research management, he took over the responsibility for the platform "hygiene and allergies" in the international research and development for detergents and cleaners.
The issue of hygiene in its various aspects, still fascinates him. He changed to the University of Rhine-Waal in October 2010 to the Faculty of Life Sciences which he represents as Dean since November 2011. The scope of his research projects ranging from the question which microorganisms are living in the domestic, to the development of new testing methods, e.g. for testing antimicrobial agents.
