Christian Pylatiuk earned his M.D. degree in electro-neurophysiology from the Medical University Marburg, Germany in 1997. In 1999 he joined the Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He has worked on different projects in medical robotics, including an autopropulsive colonoscope, a multifunctional prosthetic hand and a rehabilitation system aimed for paralyzed people. He was particularly responsible for physiological aspects and clinical testing of medical devices and received the BMBF Bionic Award 2005 and the Felix Burda Award 2006.
In 2009, Pylatiuk received his habilitation from the faculty of mechanical engineering in Karlsruhe, Germany and started automating biological and toxicological screens with zebrafish embryos to enable high-throughput screening. Since then, he has developed several automated fluorescence microscopes and handling systems for medaka and zebrafish embryos.
He was a member of the organization committee of the 2003 COST Workshop "Automation Methods for Zebrafish Research" in Leiden, The Netherlands; and was a member of the organization committee of the 2013 International Society for Medical Innovation and Technology Conference in Baden-Baden, Germany. He has published numerous articles on his medical engineering projects and reviews for several different reputed journals.
