Martin Hrabě de Angelis registered in Leopoldina

The 1,600-member National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina represents German science on international committees and fulfills a scientific advisory function for politics and society. It includes outstanding researchers who have distinguished themselves for outstanding scientific achievements.

Martin Hrabě de Angelis is studying genes in mice and humans that play a role in the metabolism and development of diabetes. He has contributed to the creation of the German Diabetes Research Center, which aims to develop new prevention approaches and therapies, and of which he is a member of the board of directors. At the Helmholtz Zentrum München he created the German Mouse Clinic. The animal model examines the influence of genes and the environment on health and disease. Through this systematic approach, he was able to discover cause-and-effect relationships for metabolic disorders relevant to the mouse and man. Hrabě de Angelis and her research partners have also been able to demonstrate for the first time that diet-related obesity and diabetes can be passed from generation to generation to the next generation.

Since 2000, Martin Hrabě de Angelis has been Director of the Institute of Experimental Genetics at the Helmholtz Zentrum München and in 2003 President of the Chair of Experimental Genetics at the Technical University of Munich.

Martin Hrabě de Angelis has contributed significantly to the networking of scientific infrastructures in genetics and the creation of national and international research consortia. Since 2008, he coordinates the European research network "Infrafrontier". The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC), which is developing a first functional encyclopedia of the mammalian genome, is based on the systemic phenotyping of disease models introduced by the German Mouse Clinic.

Martin Hrabě de Angelis has received honorary doctorates from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the Dresden University of Technology and the University of Leipzig for his scientific collaborations and joint publications in the field of diabetes research.

As a German research center on health and the environment, Helmholtz Zentrum München pursues the goal of developing a personalized medicine for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of widespread diseases such as diabetes mellitus, allergies and lung diseases. It examines the interaction of genetics, environmental factors and lifestyle. The center's headquarters are located in Neuherberg, north of Munich. The Helmholtz Zentrum München employs approximately 2,300 people and is a member of the Helmholtz Association, which comprises 19 scientific, technical and medical-biological research centers with approximately 37,000 employees.

The National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina was founded in 1652 as a scientific and scientific society and currently has more than 1,600 national and international members from all scientific fields. The oldest academy in Germany was nominated in 2008 by the federal government and the Länder to the National Academy of Sciences. In this function, she has two tasks: the representation of German science abroad and advice to politics and the public.

The German Diabetes Research Center (DZD) e.V. is one of six German health research centers. It brings together experts in the field of diabetes research and links basic research, epidemiology and clinical applications. The goal of the DZD is to contribute significantly to the personalized prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diabetes mellitus, tailored, through a new integrative research approach. The members of the association are the Helmholtz Zentrum München – German Center for Environmental Health Research, the German Diabetes Center DDZ in Düsseldorf, the German Institute for Nutritional Research DIfE in Potsdam-Rehbrücke, Germany. Research Institute of Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases Helmholtz Zentrum München an der Eber – The Karls University of Tübingen and the Paul Langerhans Institute in Dresden of the Helmholtz Zentrum München at the Carl Gustav Carus University Hospital of the TU Dresden, partners associated with the universities of Heidelberg, Cologne, Leipzig, Lübeck and Munich, as well as other project partners.

The Institute of Experimental Genetics (IEG) aims to understand the mechanisms of human disease, especially diabetes mellitus. In addition to genetics, IEG explores the effects of environmental factors in pathogenesis. The German Mouse Clinic (GMC) is part of the IEG and plays a leading role in the world in investigating these aspects at the systemic level. Developing databases and applying modern bioinformatic methods to obtain new information from the large data pool is a priority. IEG is part of the Helmholtz Diabetes Center (HDC) and partner of the German Diabetes Research Center.

The German Mouse Clinic (GMC), as a freely accessible phenotyping platform, offers complete phenotyping of murine models for the evaluation of many physiological pathways in different therapeutic areas. The German Mouse Clinic is run by the Institute of Experimental Genetics and includes the following members: Helmholtz Zentrum München, Ludwig-Maximilians University, Technical University Munich and the Universities of Bonn and Heidelberg. Scientists from these institutions with expertise in various areas of mouse physiology and pathology work side by side in close collaboration with GMC clinicians.
