Henrik Stalbrand is professor in Biochemistry at Lund University. His research group is focusing on the structure, function and applications of carbohydrate active enzymes, in particular hemicellulases [1, 2]. He obtained his PhD at Lund University in 1995 supervised by Folke Tjerneld. During a period he was visiting reseacher at VTT Biotechnology (Espoo) and during 1995 to 1997 he was a post doctoral fellow at UBC (Vancouver) with professor R.A.J. Warren and colleagues. He then joined Lund university and established his research group. Henrik´s research includes beta-mannanases (e.g. GH5 [3, 4] and GH26) [5, 6, 7] , alpha-galactosidases (e.g. GH27 and GH36) , and related enzymes .
