Kresten Lindorff-Larsen trained as a biochemist at the University of Copenhagen and Carlsberg Laboratory, and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge in 2004 under the supervision of Prof. Christopher M. Dobson. He then moved on to become an assistant professor in Copenhagen before joining D. E. Shaw Research in New York in 2007. He returned to Copenhagen in 2011, where he now serves as a Professor of Computational Protein Biophysics at the Linderstrøm-Lang Centre For Protein Science. He received the Danish Independent Research Councils’ Young Researchers’ Award in 2006, was a co-recipient of the 2009 Gordon Bell Prize and has received several prestigious grants including a Hallas-Møller stipend (2011), a Sapere Aude starting grant (2012), and most recently a Novo Nordisk Foundation challenge programme grant (2019). He was the director of the Lundbeck Foundation BRAINSTRUC initiative in structural biology and is the director the Novo Nordisk Foundation PRISM (Protein Interactions and Stability in Medicine and Genomics) centre. He is also PI in the ERC Synergy grant DynaPLIX (2023). Current research interests include developing and applying computational methods for integrative structural biology and protein dynamics, and the integration of biophysics and genomics research.
