Manfred T. Reetz is a former Director and presently Emeritus Professor at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim/Germany. He is a synthetic organic chemist who pioneered the concept of directed evolution of stereo- and regioselective enzymes as a prolific source of catalysts in organic chemistry and biotechnology. Reetz has received numerous German and international awards and prizes, and is member of the German National Academy Leopoldina, Academy of the German state of NRW, Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences, European Academy of Sciences, and Distinguished Scientist of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (China).

Zhoutong Sun obtained his Ph.D in microbiology at Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012, then he moved to Nanyang Technological University in Singapore as a research fellow. One year later, he moved to the MPI für Kohlenforschung and Marburg University for a postdoc with Prof. Manfred T. Reetz. In 2016, he became a full professor at Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His research interests are in the discovery, design and engineering of biocatalysts as well as cascade reactions design and metabolic engineering.

Ge Qu received his Ph.D in Bioinformatics from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland in 2015. Currently, he is working as an associated professor in the Reetz Laboratory at Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His major research interests are the discovery and structure-based engineering of enzymes that have potential as industrial biocatalysts.
