Norbert Kučerka, Ph.D. received his M.S. degree from Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia in 1999 and a Ph.D. degree in the field of membrane biophysics for his research utilizing the small-angle neutron scattering in 2003 under the supervision of Pavol Balgavý. He was a post-doctoral fellow with John Nagle at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA (2003-2006), and with John Katsaras at the Canadian Neutron Beam Centre in Chalk River, Canada (2006-2008). He continued his research using neutron diffraction at the CNBC as a National Research Council research officer till 2014, when he moved to Joined Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia. In Dubna he serves as a deputy director of Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics, continuing at the same time his research of model biological membranes using the scattering of neutrons and X-rays. Presently, his work is focused on the structure and interactions in membranes playing a role in Alzheimer’s disease.
