Dr. Forster is currently Professor of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden. His current focus is protein synthesis, synthetic biology and drug discovery by peptidomimetic evolution. From 2005-2011, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN. Dr. Forster is a pioneer in the areas of catalytic RNA and in vitro translation with unnatural amino acids. He has published 30 papers in peer-reviewed journals and authored multiple patents. Dr. Forster received a B.Sc. in Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, a B.Sc. (Honors) in Biochemistry, and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Adelaide, Australia. He was a Post-Doctoral Fellow with Nobel laureate Sidney Altman at Yale and received an M.D. magna cum laude from Harvard Medical School. He completed a residency in anatomical pathology followed by research as an Instructor at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
