Günther Michael Zeck

Günther Zeck studied physics at TU München, Germany, pursued a post-doc at Massachussets General Hospital, USA and joined TU Wien as University Professor in 2020. Since 2022 he leads the Institute of Biomedical Electronics.

His main research interest is cell-chip interfacing with the goal to understand and modulate biomedically relevant systems assuming they can be adequately described as equivalent electronic circuits. Together with an enthusiastic team and collaborators he is developing and applying electrode array technology in biomedicine.

He is currently involved in teaching basic courses in Electrical Engineering.
