Christoph Bräuchle, University of Munich, Germany, celebrates his 70th birthday on March 12, 2017.
Professor Bräuchle’s research interests include single molecule dynamics in nanoporous systems, the development of drug delivery systems, life cell imaging and single virus tracing, nanoparticles in human health, and hybrid nanosystems.
Christoph Bräuchle studied chemistry and physics at the Technical University of Berlin and the University of Tübingen, both Germany. He received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Munich, Germany, in 1978. After postdoctoral research at IBM Laboratories in San Jose, CA, USA, he completed his habilitation at the University of Munich in 1982. There, he was appointed Assistant Professor in 1984, and Professor for Physical Chemistry in 1988.
Among other honors, Bräuchle has been awarded the Philip Morris Research Award “New Ways in Material Science” in 1993, the Karl Heinz Beckurts Prize by the Karl Heinz Beckurts Foundation in 2002, and the Walther Nernst Medal by the Deutsche Bunsen-Gesellschaft für physikalische Chemie e.V. (DBG, German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry) in 2015. He is a member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and the Academia Europaea.
