Institute of Biophysics
Principal Investigator: Prof. Manfred Radmacher
Manfred Radmacher is a professor for biophysics at the univeristy of Bremen. His research interests are the mechanical properties of living cells and their relation to diseases. He investigates cells and tissue mainly with the Atomic Force Microscope, woth a strong emphasis on developing methods which allow to measure visco-elastic properties of cells and tisues.
Manfred Radmacher has studied physics at the Technical University in Munich and did a PhD in biophysics there in 1993. After a postdoc in Santa Barbaea (UCSB, 1993-1995) he returned to the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, where he received his habilitation in 1999.
In 2000 he got a first faculty position at the University of Gottingen, and finally moved to Bremen in 2002.
