Research Interest

Georg Waetzig

My aim is to increase patient benefit from academic biomedical research and to develop academic projects into potential drugs, dietary supplements, diagnostics or other medical products. Since 2000, I have been responsible for translational research and development projects in the fields of inflammation and infection. So far, five of the resulting drug candidates have entered testing in humans, and one cosmetic for oral lesions entered the market in 2013. In September 2019, I joined the IKMB to coordinate the translational research activities of the Institute and of the Department of Internal Medicine I of the UKSH Campus Kiel in the context of the German Excellence Cluster “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation”.
