Molecular Diagnostics for Precision Medicine: The national Network Genomic Medicine (nNGM)
Institute Of Pathology And Center For Integrated Oncology, University Hospital Cologne, Germany
Professor Dr. Reinhard Büttner (born January 15, 1960 in Fulda) is a German pathologist and university lecturer. Since 2011 he has held the chair for pathology at the University of Cologne. From 1979 to 1985 Dr. Büttner studied human medicine, ethnology and African studies in Mainz as well as human medicine in Munich, Cologne and at the Middlesex Hospital Medical School in London. In 1985 he received his doctorate in medicine from the LMU Munich for his work on investigations into the electrophoretic differentiation of the genome of human rotaviruses. In the same year he passed the United States Medical Licensing Examination. After several years as a research assistant and assistant, e.g. He habilitated in 1995 in experimental pathology at the Institute for Pathology at RWTH Aachen University, at the Department of Tumor Biology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and at the Institute for Pathology at the University of Regensburg. A year later he also received his recognition as a specialist in pathology. In 1999, the RWTH Aachen appointed him to the chair of pathology and cytology, and in 2001 he moved to the chair of pathology at the University of Bonn, where he held the position of dean of the medical faculty from 2005 to 2008. Since 2011 he has held the chair for pathology at the University of Cologne. Dr. Büttner is a co-founder of the German Register for Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors. His work focuses on the generation of animal models for human diseases and research into the mechanisms of gene regulation in malignant tumors, in particular for the diagnosis and therapy prediction of sarcomas.
