Professorship for Medical Systems Biology, University Hospital Dresden

"The Medical Faculty at the University Hospital Dresden is the youngest of its kind in all of Germany. Perhaps that’s the reason why there’s such a strong team spirit here. Since I moved with my family from San Francisco to Dresden in 2002, the research landscape has developed considerably in an international comparison – which is also due to the numerous excellence clusters found here."
