Welcome Dr. Ulrike Endesfelder, a new faculty member of MBSB!!

Ulrike Endesfelder received her diploma in physics from the University of Bonn in 2008. Afterwards she became interested in the world of molecular machines and spent a research stay at the Waseda University in Tokyo. In 2012 she received her PhD in Biophysics from the University of Bielefeld and performed her postdoctoral trainings from 2012-2014 at the University of Würzburg and the University of Frankfurt. In October 2014, she moved to the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology in Marburg, Germany, where she led a research group combining methods from physics and biology to understand the molecular organization and behavior of microbial cell biology. In 2020 she joined CMU as Associate Professor of Experimental Biophysics and became part of the MBSB program.

She commented us,

 “Interested students can choose from several research projects on one or more of the following topics: single molecule imaging, super resolution microscopy, microbial cell biology and biomolecular laboratory work, high throughput analysis of large data sets and/or microscopy hardware and software design. Our interdisciplinary research group consists of biologists, chemists, physicists and computer scientists, so that we can tailor research projects to the individual interests and experience of our students.”

This is an exciting research opportunity!!
