It is such an honor to be elected for president of the German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) 2023-2024. I am looking forward to serve on the GSCN executive board for the next six years and I strive to support the GSCN wherever I can.


As designated president of the GSCN (2023-2024) and as member of the executive board for the next six years, I have the opportunity to ensure that the network continues along its tradition of scientific excellence in stem cell research along with remaining THE interactive hub for stem cell research in Germany.

Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old.

(Jonathan Swift, 1667-1745)

We are very honored to be on board of the IMPULS consortium (Identification and manipulation of the physiological and psychological clocks of the lifespan) funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation to determine biological age and factors that influence the complex aging process in humans. We aim at reducing and preventing detrimental effects of immune-senescence by protecting immune cells from replication-mediated functional impairments.
