Elisabeth Mayr, PhD

Management Research and Clinical Research

Research statement

My main scientific interest is translating research from bench to bedside. After my postdoc in the gene therapy group I decided to switch to an administrative position where I am responsible for research management und clinical trials and can facilitate translation of research results into the clinic.
