Meet the Author

Christoph Bräuchle is Professor at the Ludwig-Maximilian-University (LMU) Munich. After his PhD, he spent one year as a postdoc at IBM in San José, California, USA. His research focuses on imaging, spectroscopy and manipulation of single molecules in bio- and nano-sciences. Besides numerous publications in international journals, Prof. Bräuchle has won several honors, including the prestigious Philip Morris Research award and the Karl Heinz Beckurts Prize 2002. He also is a member of the Academia Europaea.

Don C. Lamb is Professor for Biophysical Chemistry at the LMU Munich.
He received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and was a research fellow at the Harvard Medical School, an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at the TU Munich, a member of the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a visiting scientist at the University of Ulm. His research centers around ultra-sensitive fluorescence methods, single molecule studies, protein function and dynamics, fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopies, live-cell imaging, single particle tracking and single virus tracing.

Jens Michaelis is an Assistant Professor at the LMU Munich. After receiving his PhD in physics in 2000, he spent several years as a postdoc at the University of California, Berkley, focusing on single-molecule studies of molecular motors. His research interests are the molecular mechanisms underlying the biological activity of proteins and mechanical properties of polymer molecules. In 2007 he was awarded the Römer Prize from the LMU for his habilitation work.
