Madleen Busse is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Chair of Biomedical Physics at the Physics Department, Technical University of Munich in Germany. She studied chemistry and received her M.Sc. degree from Leipzig University in Germany, and a Ph.D. from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
Dr. Busse was awarded the TU Munich Foundation Fellowship in 2015 to start her work on 3D X ray histology using state-of-the-art microscopic and nanoscopic computed tomography. One year later, she received a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to further strengthen her profile in targeted contrast agent design, staining protocol development and X-ray computed tomography. Her research focuses on the non-destructive observation of specific sub-cellular organelles in soft tissue in 3D with X-rays providing structural and functional information at multiple scales. This can be achieved using a combined approach of specific contrast agents suitable for X-ray attenuation-based computed tomography allowing for targeted soft-tissue analysis.
