I studied Human Medicine at the University of Würzburg, Germany. Then I worked 3 years at the Institute of Pathology, followed by 7 years at the Clinic and Policlinic for Internal Medicine II, University of Regensburg. In 1999 I moved to the Institute of Clinical Pharmacology, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. In 2004 I became consultant for Internal Medicine, and in 2007 for Clinical Pharmacology. My lab at AU started in August 2008 and my key interest covers two research areas: (i) Translational Medicine (Tissue Engineering of artificial vessels and cartilage) and (II) Space Medicine. In parallel, I have a lab at the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, Germany (www.grimm-space-research.com)
