Marc Schneider studied physics at the University of Kaiserslautern, at the Ruprecht-Karls University and at the Free University Berlin where he graduated in 1998. From 1998 until summer 1999 he worked as a research assistant at the Robert-Rössle-Klinik at the Max-Delbrück-Centrum for molecular medicine (MDC) in Berlin.
In 2002 he finished his PhD in 2002 at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam (MPI-KGF). As a postdoctoral fellow he was working at the MPI-KGF, the INFM in Genoa, Italy and at the department of Biopharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology at Saarland University, Germany.
Since July 2007 he is junior professor for Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology at Saarland University, Germany. His main research focuses on synthesis and characterisation nanoparticulate drug delivery systems as well as their interaction with biological barriers. Therefore, model systems as well as systems for application are developed and investigated. The biological interaction is visualized with high resolution imaging such as scanning probe microscopy and multiphoton microscopy.
