ESR6 – Daniel Canena (JKU)


Background: Molecular Biology, Cellular Biology, Biophysics

Profile: Daniel Canena obtained his Bachelor and Master degree in Biophysics at the Federal University from Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil, at the Biophysics Institute Carlos Chagas Filho. During his bachelor’s internship, Daniel became proficient in atomic force microscopy, parasitic cell culture and electron microscopy sample preparation. His bachelor thesis in Plants Molecular Biology, dealt with the sugar cane molecular expression during colonization by symbiotic bacteria. Daniel performed his Master studies at the Biological Physics Laboratory working in collaboration with the Gynecology Institute from UFRJ. He investigated the cell membrane properties changes of uterine cervix cells during cancerous development using atomic force microscopy. Currently, Daniel is a PhD-researcher at the Institute of Biophysics, Johannes Kepler University, Linz, under the supervision of Prof. P. Hinterdorfer
