Research Goals

Margit Winkler is fascinated by the power of natural biocatalysts for chemical synthesis. Many of the reactions that one may want to use for the preparation of organic molecules have not yet been developed, or have some limitations such as: the need for highly complicated and expensive catalysts, multiple steps or they simply suffer from low selectivity.

The overall theme of Margit's research is to find new and alternative ways to catalyse a transformation by using enzymes. Sometimes, the goal is to determine the scope and limitations of an enzyme and possibly its engineering towards desired characteristics to overcome these limitations. Other times, it is the discovery and detailed study of enzymes that are not well known yet, in order to understand them better and to determine whether and how they could become applicable for synthesis. And finally, a particular product may be in the focus of the studies and the goal is then to find the best way to prepare it.

Due to this broad portfolio of interests and needs, enzymes, substrates, products and methods that have been in the focus of the team over the years, it is essential to collaborate vividly and connect the knowledge of diverse fields.

Current Projects

  • May 2017 - April 2020 FFG Industrienahe Dissertation:  Carboxylic Acid Reductases for Enzymatic Reduction of organic Acids to Aldehydes (CARERAA)

    In this project, we investigate CARs in depth with a focus on process relevant parameters.


  • January 2019 - July 2019 - FFG Proj. Nr. 870897 - FEM-Tech

    Collaborator: Dr. Gernot Strohmeier, Graz University of Technology

    The goal of this project is to synthesise aldehydes in cell free systems using carboxylate reductase enzymes. The need for stoichiometric amounts of ATP and NADPH is satisfied by recycling these costly cofactors using a cocktail of enzymes and polyphosphate as well as glucose as co-substrates.

Past Projects

  • November 2015 - February 2019 - FWF Project P 28477-B21: Catalytic cascades for selective aldehyde syntheses in vivo

    The main goal of this project is to understand the requirements and limitations of microbial cells for aldehyde synthesis. The synthesis of target products– chiral fragrance aldehydes – will be tackled by a combination of chemo-catalysis with a multi-enzymatic in vivo cascade reaction. This is a joint project with Dr. Florian Rudroff, Institute of Applied Synthetic Chemistry, TUVienna
