    Electric eel power source: an example of bioinspiration

    Job Profile
    Michael Mayer obtained a Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry with Horst Vogel at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), followed by postdoctoral research with George M. Whitesides at Harvard University.  In 2004, he started a faculty position in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan.  In fall of 2015 his group moved to the Adolphe Merkle Institute at the University of Fribourg, where he holds the chair of Biophysics.  His research takes inspiration from nature to solve problems in biophysics ranging from understanding signaling and transport processes in biological membranes as well as detecting protein complexes relevant for neurodegenerative diseases to engineering biocompatible electrical power sources.
