Dr. rer. nat. Felix Beinlich

“Nature is showing us only the tail of the lion, but I have no doubt that the lion belongs to it even though, because of its large size, it cannot totally reveal itself all at once. We can see it only the way a louse that is sitting on it would.”

Albert Einstein, 1914

Dr. Felix Beinlich is an Assistant Professor at the Center for Translational Neuromedicine at the University of Copenhagen. He earned his PhD in life science from the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf while working at the Research Center Jülich where he specialized in the mechanisms underlying synaptic vesicle acidification in glutamatergic synapses.

His work is pioneering in neurophysiology and neuroanatomy, with a particular focus on the oxygen dynamics in the cortex. He contributes to the understanding of the complex mechanisms underlaying brain function, the role of astrocytes in neuronal activity regulation, and the innovative methodologies for studying the brain’s response to various conditions. Dr. Beinlich has made significant contributions to neurobiological research using in vivo imaging and biosensors, studying oxygen dynamics and cerebral blood flow.

Outside of his academic pursuits, Felix is an avid cyclist and sailor.
