Supervision of Students:

Since 1984, I have continuously supervised first doctoral candidates for veterinary medicine and since 1988 also postgraduate and PhD students from clinical science disciplines. Altogether more than hundred diploma later also masters and PhD students were supervised in my research group.
I served as a founder and later as a co-speaker of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 599 “Sustainable Bioresorbable and Permanent Implants of Metallic and Ceramic Materials” since 2002).

In 2005, I was one of the founders and chairmen of the Transregional Research Group (TR-SFB 37). I am one of the founder members of the Graduate School at the Veterinary School in Hannover.
In addition, I have served as examiner of PhD and doctoral candidates in various universities of Germany as well as other European universities and overseas, e.g. Bremen, Breslau, Budapest and Rabat.
