After studying general chemistry and biochemistry at the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg i.Br. (Germany) I got the PhD in biochemistry from the same university. During my PhD work I was trained in virology, cell- and molecular-biology. During several postdoc positions [Department of Molecular Pathology at the University of Bonn (Germany), Charite Berlin (Germany), Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics at the University of Wuerzburg (Germany)] I received a broad training and knowledge in molecular pathology and cancer research. At the moment I am working in the Department of Molecular Pathology at the ICR (London, UK). I have published more than 60 papers in reputed journals and has been serving as an editorial board member of repute.
