…BIOSKETCH: “I am a Neuropathologist and Myopathologist and board certified in general Neurology and in Neuropathology. Currently I am the head of the neuromuscular diagnostic and research unit in Berlin at the Charité Hospital. I also act as co-Director of the German reference center of Neuromuscular diseases. My primary research interest is in juvenile and adult forms of Myositis and inflammatory nerve pathologies. Several colleagues from all over the world have spent some time with us in the lab and in diagnostics as well as in research. It has always been a pleasure to welcome guests but also, it is my declared aim to support their research. I also have a focus in ultrastructural myopathology, which we use in diagnostic routine as well as in research questions related to the identification and characterization of morphological features. In addition, I am an Associated Editor of the journal Neuromuscular disorders (NMD), and an Executive Editor for Neuropathology and applied Neuropathology (NAN). 

My commitments also extend to the European Neuromuscular Centre where I am a member of the research committee. I have organized several workshops, and I have participated in numerous ones. 

The 19th WMS meeting in 2014 was organized by Hans-Hilmar Goebel, Arpad von Moers, and myself as a local chair in Berlin. I have close scientific and society-related bonds to numerous individuals in the society.”
