Marco Fritzsche

PhD


Rosalind Franklin Kennedy Trust Research Fellow and Principal Investigator of Biophysical Immunology Laboratory

Dr. Marco Fritzsche leads the Biophysical Immunology Laboratory (www.bpi-oxford.com) between the Rosalind Franklin Institute and the Kennedy Institute for Rheumatology at the University of Oxford, UK. The BPI Lab also support a research lab within the MRC Human Immunology Unit (HIU) at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM), UK.

The BPI Laboratory aims to unravel the impact of biophysics and mechanobiology on the human immune response in health and disease. For this mission, the BPI lab develop custom-built microscopy technology at the interface of biophysics and immunology. Dr. Fritzsche holds a MSc in theoretical physics and conducted his PhD in experimental biophysics and cell-biology at the London Centre for Nanotechnology at the University College London, UK. He performed his Postdoctoral work at the University of Oxford in close collaboration with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Farm, USA.
