Professor Christian Thiede was appointed in 2006 as Professor of Molecular Hematology at University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus at the Technical University of Dresden, Dresden, DE. Following his medical education at the Free University of Berlin, he completed three years of post-doctoral training in the Division of Hematology and Oncology at Humboldt University Charité Medical School, Berlin, where he worked on the molecular characterization of gastric marginal zone B-cell lymphoma of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT).
Prof. Thiede has a wealth of experience in the molecular analysis of human tumors. His research interests include leukemogenesis and the molecular mechanisms involved, treatment resistance, and molecular monitoring of treatment response. Prof. Thiede’s group have recently focused on the use of different next-generation sequencing platforms to perform whole exome sequencing and amplicon resequencing for the characterization of leukemic samples from patients with AML.
