Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Germany

Bernhard Wolf is Professor of Medical Electronics at the Heinz Nixdorf-Lehrstuhl für Medizinische Elektronik at the Technische Universitat München, Germany. His main area of research is the complete realization of biohybrid, microsensor-based lab-on-chip systems for systemic drug discovery, tumor diagnosis and treatment.

Bernhard Wolf was born in 1949 in Freiburg i. Br., Germany. He studied biology, physics and chemistry at the University of Freiburg. In 1973 he graduated as Biologist and obtained the state examination (German Staatsexamen) for the qualification of secondary school physics teacher in 1978.

Professor Wolf set up an electron microscopic analysis work group at the Institut für Immunobiologie at the Universitat Freiburg in 1980 and conducted various tumor biologically orientated DFG projects. Between 1983 and 1987 he developed a low temperature cryo-preparation system for ice-free preparation of biological material in collaboration with LKB Bromma in Sweden.

After his habilitation for Biophysics by the Faculty of Medicine at the Universitat Freiburg, in 1988, he achieved his lecturer qualification and lectured in Freiburg and the Ecole supérieure de Biotechnologie in Strasbourg, France.

In 1998 Bernhard Wolf was appointed full professor of biophysics at the Lehrstuhl für Biophysik, Universitat Rostock, Germany. He got member of the Innovationskolleg Komplexe und Zellulare Sensorsysteme. Furthermore, he became scientific director of the Institut für Zelltechnologie e.V, in cooperation with Professor D.G. Weiss, at the Universitat Rostock.

Since 2000 Bernhard Wolf holds the highly-respected Heinz-Nixdorf Lehrstuhl für Medizinische Elektronik, endowed by the Heinz Nixdorf Foundation.

Bernhard Wolf has contributed to the education of students, especially engineers. He has been significantly contributing to excellent curricula in Biomedical Electronics and offers lectures, practical courses and seminars which are very well accepted and appreciated by the students from various disciplines.

Professor Bernhard Wolf is member of: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Medizinische Physik, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Biophysik, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Zellbiologie, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Biomedizinische Technik, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Elektronenmikroskopie, EMAS, European Microanalytical Society, Verein der Elektrotechnik, Elektronik und Informationstechnik e.V., Bund der Freunde der Technischen Universitat München, Bayern Innovativ, the Deutsche Akademie der Technikwissenschaften (acatech) and the International Academy for Medical and Biomedical Engineering.

From 2007 to 2010, he was Director of the Zentralinstitut für Medizintechnik (IMETUM) at the Technische Universitat München in Garching.
