The cell is the basic unit of our body – and key to understanding the biology of good health, as well as how molecular dysfunction leads to disease. Yet our understanding of the hundreds of cell types and subtypes in the human body is still very limited and often based on techniques with in ... more

Jens Langejürgen, born in 1981, studied physics at RWTH Aachen University, then worked in the field of biomedical optics on methods of non-invasive temperature measurement at the eye fundus. He then completed his doctorate at the Leibniz University Hannover at the Institute of Electrical Engineering and Measurement Technology on small measurement systems to analyze organic trace gases. He subsequently pursued this topic as a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Analytical Sciences (Loughborough, UK), where he supervised several studies at various European hospitals. In 2016, he moved to Mannheim to join the Project Group for Automation in Medicine and Biotechnology, which is part of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA. As the Group Leader Biomedical Sensors and Deputy Head of Department, he works, among other things, on developing application-focused new measurement methods. Furthermore, he has been a lecturer at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences since 2018 and a co-founder of Fast Forward Discoveries (FFX) GmbH since 2020.
His research interests are in biomedical instrumentation and its applications.
