Thomas Leonard

Curriculum Director

Thomas Leonard is Professor of Molecular Biology and Deputy Head of the Center for Medical Biochemistry at the Max Perutz Labs (Medical University of Vienna). His research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of signal transduction in cells, with a particular emphasis on the role of phospholipids as signaling molecules, and protein kinases and phosphatases as signal transducers. A major focus of his research interests is the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway, which is dysregulated in many human cancers.
