Jörg Vogel has been Professor and Chair of the Institute of Molecular Infection Biology at the University of Würzburg, Germany, since 2009. His main interests are regulatory small RNAs in pathogenic bacteria, and infection-associated microRNAs and long noncoding RNAs in eukaryotic hosts. He studied biochemistry in Berlin and London, and in 1999 graduated from Humboldt University Berlin with a thesis on catalytic group II introns. Following postdoctoral research on small RNA discovery at Uppsala University and Hebrew University Jerusalem, he worked as a group leader in RNA Biology at the Max Plank Institute for Infection Biology in Berlin (2004–2009). He is an elected member of EMBO and the German National Academy of Sciences.
