Erhard Hohenester is a structural biologist investigating the biosynthesis, assembly and function of extracellular matrix. He trained as a chemist in his native Austria and received his PhD in Biophysics from the University of Basel (Switzerland) in 1995. He joined Imperial College London in 1998 with a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship, which he held for 15 years. In 2009 he was promoted to Professor of Structural Matrix Biology. His current research is funded by a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award.
