Details of visit: Matteus collected extensive basic research experience as a medical student while completing his thesis at FAU. In 2014, Matteus started his medical training in nephrology. Matteus has now been awarded a TRENAL post-doctoral fellowship to perform basic research in kidney disease at Yale.
I have always enjoyed basic research as initiated during my medical thesis. In 2014 I have started to care for patients with kidney disease at Nuremberg Hospital. I would like to now expand my research skills to genetics. I have started my post-doctoral fellowship at Yale in December 2015 in the laboratory of Steve Somlo. In the long term, I would like to become an independent investigator as a physician-scientist in nephrology.
