The biophysics group at FAU investigates a broad spectrum of research topics ranging from the microscopic study of proteins and cells to the macroscopic observation of penguins in Antarctica. In each field, data acquisition via cameras, microscopes and photodetectors is combined with elaborate image...

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, abbreviated as DMD, is a genetic muscular disease causing inflammations, reduced membrane stability and ongoing myatrophy. To understand and assess the causes and effects of this incurable disease, different mouse model systems are investigated for quite some time now. ...

By combining three imaging methods, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (MPL) in Erlangen and the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering at Dresden University of Technology have now succeeded in measuring mechanical properties of the cell interior with unprecede...

Human interaction is fundamentally based on the ability to communicate. A lasting impairment of our oral expression is necessarily accompanied by severe social and economic limitations, increasing the significance of diagnosing laryngeal and voice-related disorders. Conventionally, human vocal folds...

  The main objective of the Clinical Photonics Lab (CPL) is to explore optical technologies in biology and medicine with a focus on diagnostics. In general, there are two main approaches for diagnostics: First, the measurement of a physical parameter (e.g. the absorption coefficient at a ...

Andreas Maier is a professor of computer science working in the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. After graduation in 2009 he started working as post-doctoral fellow at the Radiological Sciences Laboratory at the Stanford University. Subsequently he became innovation project manage...

Maximilian Waldner is a clinician scientist with a specialization in gastroenterology. Since the beginning of his scientific career at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, he has been interested in applications of optical imaging techniques for the evaluation of inflammatory diseases and canc...

Oliver Friedrich had a quite diverse education, studying Medicine and Physics at University of Heidelberg, then specializing as Physiologist and Biophysicist before finally ending up at FAU as Biotechnologist with a strong focus on label-free optical technologies development and applications. In bet...

In his latest publication, Florian Kordon presents a “Multi-Stage Platform for (Semi-)Automatic Planning in Reconstructive Orthopedic Surgery”. He developed a deep-learning algorithm for anatomical feature detection, which enables precise pre- and intra-operative surgery planning based on 2D X-ray i...
