Who we are

CyTUM combines cross-institutional and cross-campus wide scientific knowledge and instruments for  flow cytometry and cell imaging. These sites, referred to as "CyTUM MIH" and "CyTUM LTI", provide unique methods and expertise and are supported by funding of the respective institutes as well as user fees that follow the financial guidelines of the DFG.

The CyTUM structure, primarily organized by the CyTUM Steering Committee and a Spokesperson, consists of the Heads of the institutes MIH and LTI, together with experienced  flow cytometry and imaging scientists:

  • Prof. Dr. Dirk Busch, TUM, MIH
  • Prof. Dr. Dietmar Zehn, TUM, LTI
