Dr Martin Schuster
Experimental Officer


I studied biology at the University of Marburg (Germany). During my diploma thesis I focused on the nicotinate catabolism in proteobacteria (Dr. A.J. Pierik, Marburg, Germany). After that I moved to Prof. K. Forchhammer (Giessen, Germany) group to work on the Global Carbon/Nitrogen regulation and signal transduction system in cyanobacteria. At the end of 2006 I started my PhD in the Lab of Prof. G. Steinberg (Marburg, Germany). In 2007 I moved with his group to University of Exeter. During my PhD I studied Motor cooperation in bi-directional early endosome motility in the fungus Ustilago maydis. For this I established several microscopic techniques like FRAP, TIRF or photo-activation of fluorescent proteins. After my PhD I became Senior Experimental Officer at the Bioimaging Centre in Exeter to run the light microscopy part of the Centre.
