Prof. Philip Tinnefeld

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany

Philip Tinnefeld is professor for physical chemistry at LMU Munich. For more than 15 years, he has led an interdisciplinary research group in single molecule spectroscopy, super-resolution microscopy, DNA nanotechnology and biosensing with a focus on method development. He has contributed to breakthroughs in super-resolution microscopy with the techniques dSTORM, DNA-PAINT and pMINFLUX. Recently, he combined single-molecule detection with DNA nanotechnology to develop self-assembled functional devices. In addition to more than 190 peer-reviewed publications, he is involved in 10 patent applications and is initiator of GATTAquant GmbH.

Prof. Joerg Enderlein

Prof. Joerg Enderlein

Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany

Jörg Enderlein has studied physics in Odessa (Ukraine) between 1981 and 1986. He obtained his PhD at Humboldt-University in Berlin (Germany) in 1991 for his research on non-linear reaction diffusion systems. After his PhD, he joined PicoQuant GmbH in berlin as a research scientist, where he was involved in the development of technology for single-molecule fluorescence detection and spectroscopy. After his PostDoc with the group of Dick Keller at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (USA), he became an assistant professor at Regensburg University (Germany) in 1997. In 2001, he became a Heisenberg Fellow of the German Research Council and a group leader at the Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany’s largest research institution. In 2007, he became full professor for Biophysical Chemistry at the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen, and since 2008, he is full professor for Biophysics at the Georg August University in Göttingen. His research interests are single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, and nano-optics and plasmonics.

Prof. Chirlmin Joo

Prof. Chirlmin Joo

Delft University of Technology, Netherlands

Chirlmin Joo, a professor specializing in single-molecule biophysics at TU Delft, is dedicated to unveil groundbreaking insights into the intricate relationship between sequence, structure, and function in biomolecules. For over a decade, he has spearheaded innovative research at the intersection of biophysics and nanotechnology. Through a new technique developed by his group, Single-molecule Parallel Analysis for Rapid eXploration of Sequence space (SPARXS), millions of sequences are dynamically explored, revealing sequence-dependent biophysical and biochemical properties at the single-molecule level. His research is supported by prestigious grants such as ERC and NWO.
