László Poppe is a professor at Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), Hungary. He graduated as a chemical engineer from Technical University of Budapest in 1983 and completed his PhD in organic chemistry with Prof. L. Novák in 1987. He then was a research fellow at the Central Research Institute for Chemistry of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and spent one year (1991-1992) as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow with Prof. J. Rétey at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. He became professor and head of the Bioorganic Chemistry group at the Department of Organic Chemistry and Technology at BME in 2005. His research interests are centered on stereoselective synthesis of biologically active compounds, biocatalysis, and enzyme mechanisms.
