What fascinates you about being an HAW professor?

Working with students inspires me anew every day. For me, it is pretty special to contribute to the student's lives and to accompany and support them a little on their life's journey.

What do you particularly appreciate about HSWT?

The green and sustainable orientation of the University of Applied Sciences, as well as the practice-oriented cooperation with companies

What was your personal path to the HAW professorship? Where did you gain practical experience outside the University of Applied Sciences?

After studying biochemistry in Regensburg, I did my doctorate at the Institute of Pharmacology at the University of Vermont in the USA. Afterwards, I researched in cooperation with the American Heart Association and international pharmaceutical companies. Back in Germany, teaching and research activities followed at various institutions and Nuremberg Hospital.

What challenges did you successfully overcome during your time as a professor?

Despite Corona-related restrictions, I was able to provide our students with a practical and applied education in the laboratory.
