Dr. Martin Behrndt
Martin Behrndt is a German and European Patent Attorney and supports you regarding the protection, defense and enforcement of intellectual property rights. He enjoys accompanying projects from the very beginning and supports startups and scientists at universities or research institutions from the drafting of a patent application to the licensing of their invention to the industry.
Martin Behrndt graduated in physics at the Technical University of Dresden and worked in various scientific and technological fields.
Through his interdisciplinary research and patent attorney work he can draw on extensive expertise in the following areas:
- Optical measuring methods (including microscopy, laser technology and software development / image analysis)
- Semiconductor technology, photovoltaics, microelectronics and printing processes
- Mechanical engineering and equipment (including pumps, presses, centrifuges)
- Microfluidics and sensors (lab-on-chip, point-of-care)
- Diagnostic procedures (including PCR, immunoassays and enzymatic tests
At the Institute Fresnel in Marseille, he developed novel multiphoton microscopes using ultrashort laser pulses to study the anisotropy of crystals and biological samples. As part of his diploma thesis at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, he explored the mechanism of DNA transcription through motor proteins based on single molecule experiments. He completed a PhD in a developmental biology research group at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria near Vienna. During the project he studied the morphogenesis of cells and tissues in zebrafish embryos using biophysical methods.
His research results have been published in renowned journals (Science, Nature, Nature Cell Biology, Optics Letters, Physical Reviews A) and awarded the Hans Georg Schindler Young Investigator Award.
In the beginning of 2015 he joined the team of Hertin & Partner in the area of patent, trademark and design law.
