About the Serial Volume Editors

Thomas Muller-Reichert

Thomas Muller-Reichert
Thomas Müller-Reichert is a Professor of Structural Cell Biology at the Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden, Germany). He is interested in how the microtubule cytoskeleton is modulated within cells to fulfill functions in mitosis, meiosis and abscission. The Müller-Reichert lab is mainly applying correlative light microscopy and electron tomography to study the 3D organization of microtubules in early embryos and meiocytes of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, and also in mammalian cells in culture. He has published over 75 papers and edited several volumes of the Methods in Cell Biology series on electron microscopy and CLEM. TMR obtained his PhD at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and moved afterwards for a post-doc to the EMBL in Heidelberg (Germany). He was a visiting scientist with Dr. Kent McDonald (UC Berkeley, USA). Together with Paul Verkade, he set up the electron microscope facility at the newly founded Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG). Since 2010 he is a scientific group leader and head of the Core Facility Cellular Imaging (CFCI) of the Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus of the TU Dresden. He acted as president of the German Society for Electron Microscopy (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Elektronenmikroskopie, DGE) from 2018 to 2019. He taught numerous courses and workshops on high-pressure freezing and Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy.
