Peter Comba is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Neuchatel, France, in 1981. He became lecturer in Basel in 1992 and was shortly afterwards called to Heidelberg. He received the Humboldt and South Africa Research Awards in 2000 and spent visiting professorships in Leiden, the Netherlands, ANU and Pretoria. His research is divided between theory and practice of transition metal coordination chemistry – molecular modeling, thermodynamics, kinetics and mechanisms on the one hand, and synthesis, metal–based template reactions, catalysis and magnetochemistry on the other.

. Marion Kerscher is group leader within the Comba research group.
