About me ...

After completing my medical studies with a doctoral thesis on inherited forms of phosphate diabetes, I initially went to the Institute of Physiology at the University of Zurich.

There, I completed the "Postgraduate Course in Experimental Medicine and Biology" in Heini Murer's lab, focusing on renal phosphate regulation. Subsequently, I moved to Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, where I worked as a post-doctoral fellow in Katalin Susztak's lab on the role of Notch signaling in regeneration processes and fibrotic remodeling after renal injury.

Scientific focus:

  • Fibrosis as a consequence of regeneration processes in the kidney and cause of chronic renal failure
  • Phosphatonins
  • Clinical markers of vascular calcification and bone metabolism disorders in chronic renal failure and dialysis
