On 12 January 2020, a group of undergraduate students from the department of Biomedical Engineering at the Catholic University of Daegu (Republic of Korea) visited the Munich School of BioEngineering (MSB). The visit was part of a study tour that took the students to various research institutions and industrial companies operating in the field of biomedical engineering around Germany. "I wanted the students to see the variety of activities in the field and to inspire them to pursue a scientific career", said Prof. Yeon Soo Lee, head of the department, who accompanied the students on their trip.

The students had the opportunity to visit the labs for biomedical imaging and transmission electron microscopy. Staff scientist Martin Dierolf showed them around the experimental facilities at the Munich Compact Light Source as well as other radiography devices and explained the various imaging techniques developed and applied at the MSB. Fabian Kohler, PhD student at the Bionanotech & Molecular Robotics Lab, explained the operation of the Titan Krios Transmission Electron Microscope and the basic ideas behind DNA origami – a technique that allows scientists to build nano-sized machines from DNA.

The Munich School of BioEngineering is always happy to welcome groups of students and scientists and to arrange a program that will correspond to the visitors' interests. Please contact Paul Piwnicki, Media Relations Manager, if you are interested in a visit.
