MBT048_Cluster of Excllence “Multiscale Bioimaging” – with Tobias Moser
This week, we have another episode in English for you. A couple of weeks ago, Jeanette had the pleasure of interviewing Prof. Dr. Tobias Moser, who is the spokesperson of the new Göttingen cluster of excellence with the title: “Multiscale Bioimaging: From Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable Cells”. The aim of the cluster is to connect photonics, molecular biosciences, neuroscience and cardiovascular research to get a better understanding of excitable cells, which play a very important role in both disorders of the heart and the brain.
He explained how the application process for such a cluster works and what the opportunities and challenges are. Then, of course, you are also going to hear about the research goal of the cluster, and in the end he told Jeanette a bit about his personal background and how he became a medical researcher in Göttingen.
You are also going to hear about an exciting new project that is part of the cluster of excellence, the Hertha Sponer College, which will be launched very soon and aims at making interdisciplinary education in medics, physics and biology available to students and young researchers in these fields.
