Josef Madl, Dr.

Head of Microscopy Facility
Senior Scientist (4D Imaging)
  • Studying functional aspects in cardiovascular systems using fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) and ratiometric imaging (membrane voltage, calcium signalling)
  • Determining the topology of cell arrangements in cardiac tissues via multiphoton microscopy
  • Applying deconvolution-based superresolution microscopy to analyse nano- and microscale structural features in cardiac cells

    Josef Madl studied Biophysics at the Johannes Kepler University of Linz (graduation 2006). He continued his post-graduate studies in the laboratory of Prof. Gerhard J. Schütz, where his work focused on the analysis of store-operated calcium channels using single molecule fluorescence microscopy. After receiving his PhD in 2011, he moved to the lab of Prof. Winfried Römer, Faculty of Biology and BIOSS, University of Freiburg, where he studied the interactions of bacterial lectins with biological and synthetic membranes using different microscopy methods (confocal microscopy, widefield/TIRF- and super-resolution microscopy, atomic force microscopy). Since 2018, Josef heads the microscopy facility at IEKM and joined the 4D imaging group as a senior scientist.
