Prof. Dr. Renée Lampe



Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Lampe (b. 1963) conducts both basic and clinically-applied research for the benefit of persons with disabilities, in particular cerebral palsy (CP). She develops new technology-based concepts and therapies to improve perception, neuroplasticity and motor function. Her basic research uses mathematical models and numerical methods to simulate cerebral blood flow and processes leading to cerebral hemorrhage in preterm infants.

Prof. Lampe studied medicine at the Universities of Heidelberg and Mannheim. After completing her resident training in orthopedics at LMU Munich, she was awarded TUM's scholarship to support woman in earning their postdoctoral teaching qualification. In 2001, she was appointed senior physician at the Clinic for Orthopedics and Sports Orthopedics at the Klinikum rechts der Isar. Since 2012, Prof. Lampe has held the Markus Würth Foundation's Endowed Chair and currently serves as head of the Research Unit of the Buhl-Strohmaier-Foundation for Cerebral Palsy and Pediatric Neuro-Orthopedics.
