Klaus G. Parhofer

Biography

Klaus Parhofer is a Professor of Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University in Munich, Germany since 2003. His clinical and scientific focus is on metabolic diseases with a special interest in lipid metabolism, diabetes and inborn errors of metabolism. This position allows him to appreciate the complete spectrum of atherosclerosis such as generating laboratory data, performing clinical studies, guideline writing, translating evidence into practical medicine and teaching.

His experience in metabolism included a fellowship (1989-1992) at the Lipid-Research-Center at Washington University, St. Louis, focusing on kinetic studies in lipoprotein metabolism, which explored the mechanisms behind different hypo- and hyperlipidemias. In Munich, further studies examined postprandial metabolism, diabetic dyslipidemia and lipoprotein apheresis. Fellowships from the American Heart Association and International Atherosclerosis Society supported a further research fellowship at the University of Washington, Seattle. Prof. Parhofer has published more than 300 original and review papers in international peer reviewed journals as well as several textbook chapters and textbooks on different aspects of diabetes and lipid metabolism. As an active EAS member, he has coauthored several EAS consensus statements (FH, homozygous FH, pediatric FH, Hypertriglyceridemia and Rare Dyslipidemias). He is involved in many international projects, also in less privileged parts of the world (Sub-Saharan Africa, Central and South-East Asia). These projects focus on non-communicable diseases, mostly vascular health.

With this short introduction, Prof. Parhofer asks you to vote for him as the EAS Secretary. He hopes to contribute his clinical and scientific skills and international experience to the benefit of this important Society.
