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

Stefan Scheuermann, born in 1989, studied biotechnology at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences, graduating with a Master of Science (M.Sc.) Biotechnology-Bioprocess Development. After a subsequent research stay at the National Centre for Sensor Research (NCSR) in Dublin, he began his career in laboratory automation in 2015 at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA, working as a research associate at the Fraunhofer Project Group for Automation in Medicine and Biotechnology PAMB in Mannheim. Since then, his scientific work has focused on the use of magnetic particles for highly sensitive biomarker detection technologies and automated tissue dissociation. Stefan Scheuermann is a group member of the Biomedical Sensors and Microsystems team and responsible for managing research projects with industrial and public-sector partners. Furthermore, he has been a lecturer at DHBW Mannheim since 2019 and a co-founder of Fast Forward Discoveries (FFX) GmbH since 2020.
His research interests are in the areas of tissue dissociation, single cell analysis and laboratory automation.
