Malte Renz was born in Düsseldorf, Germany, and grew up in Bremen. Malte went to Academy of Fine Arts Düsseldorf and Heinrich-Heine University to study both Fine Arts/ Painting (1997-2003) and Medicine (1998-2005). As doctoral candidate (2005-2008) and post-doctoral fellow (2008-2012), he worked in the basic research labs of the German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, and the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. During this time, Malte developed tools of quantitative fluorescence life cell microscopy and single molecule imaging and used these tools to address principle molecular mechanisms of disease. After his residency at the Albert Einstein College in the Bronx, NY (2012-2017), Malte is currently completing his fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at Stanford University (2017-2020). It has been Malte’s goal to bridge basic research and patient care.
