Elmar J Prenner got his Degree of Diplom Ingenieur and PhD in the Department of Biochemistry of the University of Technology in Graz. His PhD thesis investigated the lateral architecture and lipid domain formation in erythrocyte membrane using time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. Subsequently, he was supported by an EMBO postdoctoral fellowship to work in the group of Dietmar Möbius at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry on lateral membrane organization using Brewster angle microscopy. Then he joined Karl Lohner at the Austrian Academy of Science to work on antimicrobial peptides and finally was supported by the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) to work on the membrane interactions of antimicrobial peptides with Ron McElhaney at the University of Alberta. In 2002, again support by AHFMR, he joined the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary. In 2008 he was appointed as a tenure-track faculty.


His research includes structure and function of biological membranes with a focus on the role of lipids, lateral domain organization, lipid-protein interactions; biomimetic model systems and nanotechnology; nanotoxicology, membrane biophysics and bioanalytical chemistry.
