Academic Career and Research Areas

The research interests of Professor Burdach (b. 1952) focus on the development and optimization of therapies in the treatment of oncological disease in children and young people. Findings from cell biology are used to develop individualized therapies.

Following research posts at Harvard University, Stanford University and in Seattle working with Nobel laureate Don Thomas, Burdach acquired his postdoctoral teaching qualification (habilitation) in 1989 in Düsseldorf. Before being offered an appointment at TUM he was director of the University Hospital and Department of Outpatient Care and Pediatrics of Halle University (Martin Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg). Since 2003 he has been the director of the Department of Outpatient Care and Pediatrics at Klinikum rechts der Isar and head physician of the Children’s Clinic at Schwabing Hospital in Munich. Professor Burdach is a member of the editorial boards and a consultant of several journals (including the International Journal of Pediatrics, Blood, Bone Marrow Transplantation), a consultant for the German Research Foundation (DFG), German Cancer Aid, the Wilhelm Sander Foundation and the German Childhood Cancer Foundation. He is also a scientific advisory board member of EOS Biotechnology and chairman of the board of trustees of the German Diabetes Research Institute. He holds intellectual property rights in the field of gene chip technology.
