ludwig NiessenProf. Dr. Niessen is senior researcher and adjunct professor at the department of Microbiology of Technical University of Munich in Freising, Germany. He graduated in general biology at RWTH Aachen. In 1993, he obtained his Ph.D. in Natural Sciences at Technical University of Munich. In 2001, he obtained his habilitation in Microbiology at the same University. Prof. Niessen was chair of the International Commission on Food Mycology (ICFM) from 2010 until 2022. He (co-)authored >90 papers in peer-reviewed journals. His research is centred on: 1) development and application of (isothermal) molecular biological assays and their application for the rapid detection of mycotoxin producing fungi (e.g. Penicillium, Aspergillus, Fusarium, Stachybotrys, Chaetomium), 2) molecular detection of fungal wild life pathogens (e.g. Pseudogymnoascus destructans, Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans) and development of field deployable assays, 3) fundamental research on the role of surface active fungal proteins in the phenomenon of over foaming (gushing) of carbonated beverages, e.g. beer, champagne, sparkling wine.
