Biography

Following a Diploma in Biochemisty from the University of Halle (Germany), Thomas moved to the University of Leeds (UK) to receive his PhD in Structural Biology of protein misfolding. Being awarded a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellowship, he subsequently moved to the University of Cambridge (UK) to work in the Departments of Chemistry and Genetics. During this time, he established a cross-disciplinary team to develop innovative ways to develop and analyse novel models of protein misfolding, with a major focus on Alzheimer`s Disease. In 2011 Thomas received funding to establish his independent research group at the University of Heidelberg (Germany). Here, the main research interest of his group focused on proteostasis in neurodegenerative disease, by providing novel methods to recapitulate human disease aspects using cellular and Drosophila models. Thomas joined AbbVie in 2015 and leads the Disease Model Systems Laboratory in Neuroscience Discovery.
