Dr. Markus Rehberg joins CeNS as Extraordinary Member
PD Dr. Markus Rehberg studied molecular biology in Munich and graduated 2000. During this time he received a scholarship of the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes). He obtained his Ph.D. in 2005 with summa cum laude from the LMU München, with a thesis on microtubule binding proteins, performed with R. Gräf and M. Schliwa at the Institute of Cell Biology, Munich. After a postdoctoral stay with A. Konnerth, he joined in 2007 the group of F. Krombach at the Walter-Brendel-Centre of Experimental Medicine, Munich, where he investigated interactions and effects of nanomaterials in the microcirculation. In 2013 he received the facultas docendi and venia legendi in physiology and is since then group leader at the Walter-Brendel-Centre. By using advanced in vivo microscopy techniques, he investigates different novel nanoconstructs at the microscopic tissue/cell level and aims to target distinct immune cell populations, in order to control specific cellular functions.
