Oliver Schraidt

Facility Manager
AEMIS: Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy

Oliver is a biochemist and structural biologist with extensive experience in advanced electron microscopy. He received his PhD from the University of Vienna in 2010, working at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) and Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) with (cryo-)electron microscopy on the structure of macromolecular complexes.

From 2011 onwards he worked as an interdisciplinary Post-Doc at the European Molecular Biological Laboratory (EMBL, Grenoble and Heidelberg), expanding his repertoire of advanced microscopy techniques in order to study the assembly and budding of Influenza virus. Before joining INL in 2018 as a cryo-electron microscopy Facility Manager, Oliver worked for two years as a project manager at the European Vaccine Initiative (EVI, Heidelberg).
