Dr. Thomas Thiele...


... studied Medicine in Greifswald and participated in exchange programs in Zagreb (Croatia) and East London (South Africa). He specialized in Transfusion Medicine and subspecialized in Hemostasis and Thrombosis. His research started with the application of proteome analysis methods to unravel the impact of production and storage on the protein integrity of blood-derived therapeutics. Later on, he was interested in the safety of blood transfusion with an emphasis on donor exposures related to the transfusion of platelet concentrates. Promoted by a scholarship from the foundation “Stiftung für Hämotherapieforschung” his research now focusses on platelet subpopulations and their role in hemostasis, thrombosis and immunity.

In addition, he kept his ties with Cincinnati as adjunct professor of pediatrics at CCHMC. His research focuses on the innate immune system, in particular the inflammatory and regulatory roles of the anaphylatoxins and their cognate receptors in allergic, autoimmune and infectious diseases. Dr. Köhl has published more than 150 original articles and reviews in international peer-reviewed journals. His research has been continuously funded by the DFG, BMBF or the NIH since 1990. In a joint venture with CCHMC, he leads the International Research Training Group 1911 as a platform for PhD and MD students, who are interested in the immunoregulation of inflammation in allergy and infection.
