    Malte Renz, MD, PhD

    Instructor, Obstetrics & Gynecology - Gynecologic Oncology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in cell motility and molecular dynamics. I believe that intra- and intercellular molecular dynamics, compartmentalization, and complex formation may differentiate disease from normal beyond the expression level of proteins and may constitute relevant pathomechanisms. The tools I am using are quantitative fluorescence live-cell microscopy on the ensemble and single-molecule level. I aim to bridge direct patient care and basic research.
