THEODOR RÜBER, M.D.

Principal Investigator

„If the human brain were so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simple that we couldn’t“. I have always felt challenged by this famous quote attributed to the US engineering pioneer Emerson Pugh. Now, I am honored to coordinate a multidisciplinary young group which aims to overcome this contradiction with limitless curiosity, full dedication, versatile talent, and a clear orientation towards the patient and their pathology, both of which stand at the center of our research efforts.
