Current position
Miltenyi Biotec B.V. & Co., Member of the Management Board

I am on the board of BioRiver because
I see no reason why the Rhineland and North Rhine-Westphalia should lag behind Munich or the Rhine-Main area in the perception of the industry. Such a concentration of excellent research institutions, biotechnology industry and a far-sighted Ministry of Economics and Innovation make the location unique. It is important to network existing capacities and create the framework conditions under which real innovation can emerge.
