Univ.-Prof. Dr. Judith M. Rollinger
University of Vienna, Austria
After her PhD in Pharmacognosy (University of Innsbruck/Austria), Judith Rollinger extended her studies to the fields of phytochemistry, ethnopharmacology, and molecular modelling, and implemented computational approaches in natural product science (habilitation in 2007). She was appointed full Professor at her present institution in 2014 leading the ‘Phytochemistry and Biodiscovery’ group. Prof. Rollinger is senator of the University of Vienna and project leader in various national and international projects. ##MORE## She served as president (2020 - 2023) of the largest European learned society, focusing on research on natural products, nature-based drug discovery, medicinal plant research and quality control of herbal medicines – the “Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research” (Home - Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA) (ga-online.org)). Her research focuses on the interdisciplinary field of integrating big data analytics (chemoinformatics, chemometry) in pharmacognostic research as strategy for the discovery of natural lead structures for treating viral infections, metabolic syndrome, and inflammation. Publications resulting from her research have appeared in highly ranked international journals (~140), as book contributions, and patents.
