Breaking the Wall to the Next Generation. Are We Providing the Right Conditions for Young Scientific Success?

Leif Schröder studied physics and chemistry at the Universities of Göttingen and Heidelberg. After receiving his doctorate in 2003, he worked at the University of California in Berkeley in the lab of Prof. Alexander Pines – here, too, in the field of molecular imaging. As a biophysicist and Head of the Molecular Imaging Research Group at the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology, Schröder develops so-called “Xenon” biosensors that can help to better and more rapidly diagnose changes in cell structure during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
