Dr. Kurt Brunner

Technische Universität Wien

Kurt Brunner, born in 1973 graduated in Technical Chemistry from TU Vienna before obtaining his doctorate from the University’s Institute of Chemical Engineering in 2003. While preparing his thesis, he worked on the molecular biology of fungi. Following research work conducted at the University of Naples, he then participated in several projects investigating plant-pathogen interactions as a postdoc at the Vienna University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences and TU Vienna. He has headed the “Molecular Diagnostics” working group at the Department for Agrobiotechnology (IFA-Tulln) since 2008. His activities generally focus on the development of DNA-based test assays for use in food and water analytics.

    A quantum wave in two crystals

    Particles can move as waves along different paths at the same time – this is one of the most important findings of quantum physics. A particularly impressive example is the neutron interferometer: neutrons are fired at a crystal, the neutron wave is split into two portions, which are then s ... more

    Climate protection: CO₂ turned into methanol

    For reasons of climate protection, carbon dioxide must not be released into the atmosphere. Wherever the formation of carbon dioxide cannot be prevented, it should be captured and converted into other substances. The best possible solution is creating substances that have value and can be s ... more

    Microscaffolds – a New Strategy in Tissue Engineering

    Until now, there have been two completely different approaches to producing artificial tissue. At TU Wien, a third approach has now been developed that combines the advantages of both. It is an age old dream of medicine: if arbitrary kinds of tissue could be produced artificially from stem ... more

    The search for APIs in the genome of fungi

    Fungi hold enormous potential to discover new active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and valuable substances, for example antibiotics, pigments and raw materials for biological plastics. While conventional discovery methods are reaching their limits, recent developments in bioinformatics ... more

    Organs-on-a-Chip

    The aim of personalized medicine (or precision medicine) is to take patients’ personal features into consideration as much as possible for their medical treatment, thereby going beyond the functional diagnosis of the disease. A promising concept that is gaining ever more attention and showi ... more
