Prof. Dr. Florian Eyer


Clinical Toxicology

Academic Career and Research Areas

Professor Eyer (*1971) conducts research in the field of clinical toxicology to better understand toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic processes and test them using experimental and clinical models. Key aspects of his research include methods of poison elimination, addiction medicine and critical care toxicology. A further field of research is the genetics of alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver.

After completing his undergraduate and doctoral studies (2000) at LMU Munich, Professor Eyer took up a position at TUM’s university hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar. From 2001, he served as assistant physician in the field of clinical toxicology. Professor Eyer acquired his German medical board certification in internal medicine in 2007, with additional certification in internal intensive care medicine (2009) and addiction medicine (2010). Having obtained his postdoctoral teaching qualification (habilitation) in 2010, Professor Eyer became senior physician in the Department of Clinical Toxicology. His clinical specialties are critical care toxicology and addiction medicine. He was appointed to a professorship at TUM in 2012.
