Niels Reichardt received his PhD from the University of Konstanz, Germany. His postgraduate studies on projects in the field of synthetic carbohydrate chemistry were carried out at the Institute for Chemical Research of the CSIC in Seville. Afterwards he had the opportunity to complete his training in organic synthesis at the Institute for Macromolecular Science and Engineering of the University Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg developing methods for the synthesis of macrolides as protein kinase inhibitors. In 2004 he started working as a Research Scientist for Glycoform Ltd, Oxford, a biotechnology company developing synthetic therapeutic glycoproteins. He has been Principal Investigator at CIC biomaGUNE since 2006. In 2008, together with Manuel Martin-Lomas he founded MDRenal, S.L., a biotechnology company developing tools for mass spectrometry based metabolomics, where he was Scientific Director until 2010. His current research interests are centred on the synthesis of oligosaccharides of biological interest, immunoglycobiology and the development of diagnostic applications based on carbohydrate chemistry.
