Further information

I am trained in Nuclear Medicine with a special focus on the diagnoses and treatment of thyroid diseases, especially thyroid cancer and hyperthyroidism (autonomous thyroid disease, Graves’ disease).

I studied at the Philipps University in Marburg and worked as a resident at the Gutenberg University in Mainz, both in Germany. In 1992, I changed to the University Hospital Zürich and became Professor of the University Zürich in 2004. From 2009 – 2018 I was the Director and Coordinator of the Thyroid Center at the University Hospital Zürich. I am the author of more than 100 publications including a publication as senior author in the New England Journal of Medicine. I am member of national and international professional associations and can benefit from a high-ranking local, national and international network.
