Ernst Bamberg (Max Planck Institute)

Ernst Bamberg is Professor of Biophysical Chemistry at University of Frankfurt, and Director of the Department of Biophysical Chemistry of the Max Planck Institute für Biophysik in Frankfurt. He is the inventor of the optogenetics approach and has been at the fore front of this technology since its discovery.

The four European scientists, Bamberg, Hegemann, Miesenböck and Nagel, made the fundamental observations and discoveries and developed light-sensitive molecules that can be introduced into specific types of neuron.

In 2003, Nagel, Bamberg, Hegemann and colleagues described a variant of Channelrhodopsin (ChR2), which allowed more rapid light activation of the associated channel.
Nagel and Bamberg supplied ChR2 to the two young American scientists, Boyden and Deisseroth, who then successfully expressed ChR2 in mammalian neurons.
Between 2005 and 2007, Hegemann, Boyden, Bamberg, Nagel and Deisseroth worked to develop optogenetic methods for inhibiting and stimulating neurons.
Ernst Bamberg, Germany, Professor, is Head of the Dept. of Biophysical Chemistry and Director at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
