Currently, our team consists of two members which are responsible for the hardware, the software and the experimental validation. Both of us are situated at the BioQuant Heidelberg and belong to the Theoretical Systems Biology group. This results in major locational advantages and enables us to test our product with a diverse group of scientists.
Stefan Kallenberger (Dr. med Dr. rer. nat.) has been doing research in the field of systems biology for several years. His strong background in medicine and physics enables him to approach biomedical research in a very effective manner. Besides working on cancer research by combining mathematical models and live-cell experiments, he likes to develop new technological solutions in life sciences.
Tim Treis (Master student, molecular biotechnology) has always been fascinated by the opportunities modern technology offers for biological research. He combines a love for synthetic and systems biology with almost a decade of programming experience. His interest in micro-controllers and 3D printing made it possible to design the custom electronic and optical components within the CytoScanner platform.
If you are interested in working with us during later stages of the project, we’ll be happy to talk about your opportunities. As we are part of an institute associated with Heidelberg University, we’re also interested in talking about possible internships, bachelor or master thesis projects.
We’re going to start a closed beta program in March, 2020, in which we’ll sell the first 10 CytoScanner devices for a reduced price. During this phase, we’ll provide monthly on-site support and training. Also, we want to develop the platform according to your actual needs, so you’ll have the direct opportunity to request features or changes during this phase. If you are interested in hearing more about the development of the CytoScanner platform, just fill out the contact form below. In case you are interested in being a member of the closed beta program, just briefly describe what you would use the CytoScanner for or how it could transform your research.
If you have any questions or suggestions for us, you are also more than welcome to send them to us using the contact form!
