Ruben Fernandez-Busnadiego, PhD

Prof Dr. at University of Göttingen Medical Center

Location: Göttingen Germany

Ruben Fernandez-Busnadiego, PhD, received his undergraduate degree in physics from the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain). He carried out his PhD work at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (Germany), investigating synaptic structure by cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET). Later on, as a postdoctoral fellow at the Yale School of Medicine, he studied various aspects of membrane biology in neurons. He then returned to the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry to lead a group using the latest cryo-ET technology to unveil the links between protein aggregation and cell death in neurodegenerative diseases.

Since 2019, Dr. Fernandez-Busnadiego has been a Professor at the University Medical Center Göttingen. His group continues to employ cutting edge cryo-ET to investigate in situ the structural basis of cellular function and disease-related dysfunction.
