    Following my undergraduate studies in Medicine in Munster, Germany, and one year at the Medical School in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, I received my postgraduate training in Paediatrics and specialist training in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology at the University Children’s Hospital in Munster.

    I spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and went for a three months training fellowship in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Centre in Seattle. In 2006, I was appointed as Professor of Clinical Paediatric Oncology and then succeeded Professor Sir Alan Craft in 2007 as Sir James Spence Professor of Child Health.
