The Cramer laboratory studies the molecular mechanisms of eukaryotic gene transcription by integrated structural biology and the systemic principles of genome regulation with the use of functional genomics and computational biology.
Cramer has been awarded several prizes, such as the Feldberg Foundation Prize (2011), the Ernst-Jung Award for Medicine (2009), and the Gottfried-Wilhelm-Leibniz Award (2006) by the German Research Foundation (DFG). In 2012, he received the Federal Cross of Merit from the Federal Republic of Germany. He is an elected member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the German Academy of Sciences (Leopoldina).
