PD Dr. Michael Seidel, born 1973 in Waiblingen, Germany, studied Technical Biology at the University of Stuttgart. He obtained 2003 his doctorate (Dr. rer. nat) in Physical Chemistry at the University of Tuebingen. After a postdoctoral period at the Industry (Miltenyi Biotec GmbH) he moved in 2005 to the Technical University of Munich at the Chair of Analytical Chemistry (Prof. Niessner) as group leader and lecturer. Since 2014 he is senior scientist (Privatdozent) at the Technical University of Munich and leads the research group “Bioanalytics and Microanalytical Systems” at the Chair of Analytical Chemistry and Water Chemistry & Institute of Water Chemistry (Director: Prof Elsner).


His research is financed by many third-party funded national and international projects. His research interests are bioanalytics, microarrays, biosensors, immunoassays, molecular biological methods, surface chemistry, microfluidics, immunomagnetic separation, monolithic adsorption filtration, and analysis of pathogens, toxins and pharmaceuticals.


He is the author of over 60 publications. All publications can be found here:
