I am a professor of medicine in Switzerland who is specialized in treatment of liver diseases, in particular hepatitis B, hepatitis C, portal hypertension and cholestatic liver diseases. I work also as a transplant physician at our hospital. Most of our patients are being treated within the realm of often international clinical trials. Besides that, I have an active research program where we try to devise the treatments of the next century.
I started my training in Switzerland and got additional training in the U.S.A. In the States I worked as a guest scientist at NIH in Bethesda MD, as an intern and resident in Georgetown University / VAMC Washington D.C. and as a GI fellow at UCHSC in Denver Colorado. In Denver, I joined the faculty as a gastroenterologist / hepatologist / clinical pharmacologist, first as assistant, then as associate professor. In 1985 I returned to my native country as a professor of Medicine and Clinical Pharmacologist.
