Professor Dr. Matthias Tschöp elected member of the German National Academy of Sciences

Professor Tschp is an internationally recognised diabetes expert. He heads the Institute for Diabetes and Obesity (IDO) at the Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen and is the scientific director of the Helmholtz Diabetes Center (HDC). The Alexander von Humboldt Professor also holds the Chair of Metabolic Diseases at the Technische Universitt Mnchen (TUM). His research work focuses on the molecular foundations of the control of fat and sugar metabolism, with the objective of obtaining a better understanding of diabetes and obesity, two widespread diseases, in order to develop new approaches to personalised therapy. Prof. Tschp has already received multiple distinctions in the framework of his research activities. In addition to the Humboldt Professorship, he has also received the Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the Werner-Creutzfeldt Prize from the Deutsche Diabetes Gesellschaft (DDG).

Prof. Tschp's mission: finding a cure for diabetes. He continually campaigns for scientific progress in diabetes research. This also includes a series of diabetes conferences that, in cooperation with Nature Medicine, he initiated and is heading. The first conference in this series is to be held in the Residenz palace in Munich from 22-24 September. The Helmholtz-Nature Medicine Diabetes Conference serves as a forum where scientists and experts can network and exchange scientific information. The pressing issues and challenges with regard to type 2 diabetes will be faced together in an interactive dialogue, and new preventive approaches and future therapy concepts will be developed.
