Falk Schlaudraff

Falk Schlaudraff was born in Lüneburg, Germany. After his Master in Molecular Life Science at the University of Lübeck, where he also absolved the undergraduate studies of Computer Science, he moved to Marburg (Phillipps-University Marburg, Germany) and later to Ulm (University of Ulm, Germany), where he worked on and finished his Ph.D. thesis on Parkinsons Disease at the Laboratory of Prof. Birgit Liss. Afterwards he worked as Scientist R&D for Qiagen (Hilden, Germany), before he started at Leica Microsystems as Product Manager in May 2011.

Precise Spatial Proteomic Information in Tissues

Despite the availability of imaging-based and mass-spectrometry-based methods for spatial proteomics, a key challenge remains connecting images with single-cell-resolution protein abundance…

Workflows & Protocols: Laser Microdissection for Pathology and Cancer Research

Tumor development results from mutations in our DNA. For their deeper analysis, cancer researchers have to dissect the relevant tissue areas. Here we report the reason why laser microdissection is a…

Workflows & Protocols: Connecting Microscopy and Molecular Biology in Neuroscience

The main topic during this course was how to apply laser microdissection in neuroscience. Leica specialists demonstrated why laser microdissection is a suitable techniques for brain investigation as…

Workflows & Protocols: How to Isolate Individual Chromosomes with Laser Microdissection

During the first Leica Workshop in Brazil, at the Centro de Energia Nuclear na Agricultura/USP (CENA), the participants learned how to prepare samples for laser microdissection (LMD) using a cryotome.…

Workflows & Protocols: How to Use a Leica Laser Microdissection System and Qiagen Kits for Successful RNA Analysis

Laser Microdissection (LMD) allows isolating individual cells or chromosomes and is a well established technique for sample preparation prior downstream analysis of the nucleic acid content via PCR or…

The Morbus Parkinson Puzzle

A characteristic sign of M. Parkinson is the deterioration of dopaminergic neurons in the mid-brain, specifically in the substantia nigra (SN, black substance). Different causes and forms of this…
