Tanja Deckert-Gaudig studied chemistry at the University of Würzburg and received her PhD in organic chemistry in the group of Prof. S. Hünig in 1997. After her parental leave she switched to physical chemistry in 2002. Since then she has been working on Raman spectroscopy and scanning probe microscopy in the group of Prof. V. Deckert.

After working at the Leibniz Institute of Analytical Sciences (ISAS) in Dortmund she joined the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) in 2009. In 2011 she and her colleagues were awarded with the Thüringer Forschungspreis for their achievements in the field of Nanoscopy.

Deckert-Gaudig’s main focus is the structural and chemical analysis of biopolymers in particular amyloid fibrils using tip-enhanced Raman scattering (TERS). The usage of TERS in this field is a new approach to study the secondary structure and chemical composition of amyloid fibrils on the single particle level. The results provide valuable information to further deepen the insight into the phenomenon of protein fibrillation.
