Gerhard J. SCHÜTZ


Gerhard studied technical physics at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, where he obtained his PhD (1997). He stayed in Linz as postdoctoral researcher, and received his venia docendi in Biophysics in 2004. From 2004 until 2011 he was associate Professor at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, since 2011 he is full Professor at the Institute of Applied Physics at TU Wien.

Research interests: 

Single molecule optical microscopy, superresolution microscopy, atomic force microscopy, the biophysics of membranes and T cell activation.

Interests in the biointerface network:

Gerhard’s group has long-lasting expertise in the high-resolution analysis of cells and subcellular structures. He is interested in developing, characterizing and applying biomimetic surfaces to understand cellular interfaces.
