Prof Daniel Müller

Co-Director BRCCH
ETH Zurich

Prof Daniel Müller is the Co-Director of the BRCCH and Professor of Biophysics at ETH Zurich. Together with Director Prof Georg Holländer, Prof Müller is the Centre’s academic leader and is responsible for its strategic orientation and initiatives.

He did his PhD in biophysics at Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany and at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel. His academic career has included positions at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics and the University of Technology in Dresden, Germany, where he also co-established the research centres for Biotechnology (BIOTEC) and Molecular Bioengineering (BCUBE). In 2010, Prof Müller joined ETH Zurich, and in 2014, together with Wolfgang Meier (University of Basel), he launched and became the co-director of the Swiss National Competence Center of Research (NCCR) of Molecular Systems Engineering. Prof Müller was part of the team that co-created the concept and acquired funding for the BRCCH in 2018.

His research focuses on bionanotechnological tools for quantifying interactions and controlling biological processes. Currently, these tools allow the imaging of cells and cellular components at (sub-)nanometer resolution, the quantification, localization and manipulation of cellular interactions and the control of various cellular states.
