Christian Tischer

Christian Tischer studied physics in Heidelberg, Germany. He learned about biology and microscopy during his PhD thesis at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg where he developed specialized microscope systems to investigate cellular signaling mechanisms. He deepened his knowledge in bioimaging during a postdoctoral research project at the AMOLF institute in Amsterdam where he worked on the microscopy based quantification of cyto-skeleton dynamics. Following a passion for support and teaching he then worked of almost 10 years at EMBL’s Advanced Light Microscopy Facility (ALMF) supporting scientists in both microscopy and bioimage analysis. Since end of 2018, his focus shifted completely towards bioimage analysis support and he is now running EMBL’s Centre for Bioimage Analysis (CBA).
