Claudia Langenberg is Professor of Computational Medicine at the Berlin Institute of Health at Charité (BIH) and MRC Investigator and Programme Leader at the MRC Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge. She studied medicine in Münster, Germany, and moved to the United Kingdom to obtain her master’s and PhD in epidemiology and complete specialist clinical training in public health medicine. After spending a year at the University of California San Diego, her research focused on the genetic basis of metabolic control, and her team studies its effects on health through integration of molecular with clinical data in large-scale patient and population-based studies. Prof Langenberg has over 250 publications, many in high-impact journals, and is one of the most highly cited scientists in her field.
The Berlin Center for Translational Vascular Biomedicine, jointly founded by the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH), Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in the Helmholtz Association, represents an interdisciplinary scientific network with the pronounced aim to foster translation in the field of vascular biomedicine. It unites leading scientific knowledge with clinical expertise and thereby promotes the transfer of scientific insights to clinical use.
Pursuing its mission, the Center initiated the Lecture Series “Vascular Networking” to invite distinguished experts and promote international scientific exchange to both enrich the Berlin scientific community and provide the foundation for new and visionary collaborations.
The lecture series is conducted in an online-format and attracts a broad audience from the wider Berlin community. The online event will comprise a 45 min talk and a 15 min open discussion followed by a 1 hour closed exchange with 3-4 interested experts. These slots are allocated on a first come first served basis. If you are interested please indicate so on your event registration.
