University of Basel
Thomas Braun has received his PhD in 2002 in Biophysics from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, Switzerland. During his PhD thesis, he has applied highresolution electron microscopy and digital image processing to study the structure and function of membrane proteins. Subsequently, he has worked on nanomechanical sensors to characterize the mechanics of membrane proteins at the Institute of Physics, University Basel and the CRANN, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. He has been working at the Center for Cellular Imaging an Nano Analytics (Biozentrum, University of Basel, Switzerland) since 2009 and is developing new methods for electron microscopy, single cell analysis and nano-mechanical sensors for biological applications.
