Commerzbank prizes for outstanding young researchers at TU Dresden



On June 30th 2017, the dissertation prize of the Commerzbank and the Dr.-Walter-Seipp-Preis for outstanding dissertations of young academics of the TU Dresden will be awarded. One of the awardees is Dr. Paul Müller, postdoc at the Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden (BIOTEC). He will be awarded a dissertation prize of the Commerzbank and 1.000 Euro prize money.

Dr. Paul Müller earned his doctorate at the BIOTEC on the topic "Optical Diffraction Tomography for Single Cells". In contrast to classical computer tomography, which is used to obtain 3D reconstructions of tissues with x-ray radiation, his work addresses the 3D reconstruction of single cells with light. "The award is reassuring and motivates me to continue my scientific work. I am grateful to be awarded a prize for outstanding science", says Paul Müller. "Especially interesting to me is the description of biophysical processes with the help of algorithms and computer models. In the group of Prof. Jochen Guck, my doctoral adviser, several such research approaches exist, ranging from microfluidics to atomic force microscopy. I am very much looking forward to my future in the field of academic sciences", he continues.

The prizes are donated by the Commerzbank AG and will be awarded this year for the 21st time. The associated Dr.-Walter-Seipp-Preis exists for 20 years. Dr. Walter Seipp was the chairman and executive chairman of the Commerzbank for many years. The award ceremony will take place on June 30th 2017, 14.00h at the Commerzbank Dresden (Devrientstraße 3, ground floor - Eventlounge, 01067 Dresden).
