Otmar Wiestler: WHS 2015 Testimonial on Digital Health
Helmholtz-Präsident Wiestler zum Science March
Otmar Wiestler über die Akzeptanz und die Rahmenbedingungen der Forschung in Deutschland
Otmar D. Wiestler is a German physician, a professor at the University of Heidelberg and was until recently the Director of the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ) until his election as President of the Helmholtz Association in 2015. He is not a typical basic scientist, but he successfully entered a number of highly popular fields of clinical research, including cancer research, tumor genetics and, more recently, stem cell research. He focuses on technology transfer of already existing technologies from basic science into clinical use, rather than developing the basic science.
