Karsten Haupt studied Biochemistry at the University of Leipzig, Germany. In 1994 he obtained his PhD in Bioengineering from Compiègne University of Technology, France. He then spent several years as a research fellow at Lund University, Sweden, where he worked on molecular imprinting with Klaus Mosbach. Back in France he was a researcher at INSERM, Paris, before joining the University of Paris 12 as an associate professor. In 2003 he was appointed full professor of Nanobiotechnology at Université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC), France, where he is now the Head of the CNRS Institute for Enzyme and Cell Engineering.
His present research interests include affinity technology, chemical and biosensors, molecularly imprinted polymers and synthetic receptors, biomimetic polymers and nanostructured materials for biomedical applications.
