From 1968 to 1971, he served as a Research Assistant at the Max-Planck-Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt/Main, Department of Neuropathology/Neurochemistry, with main topics of research including autoradiography of diffusible substances; electron microscopical autoradiography. From 1971 to 1985, he served as a Research Assistant at the Institute of Medical Radiation Research, with main topics of research of cell kinetics, particularly of brain cells in vivo; quantitative autoradiography. In 1978, he received a Habilitation (cell biology) from the Medical Faculty from University of Würzburg/Germany. From 1978 to 1985, he served as a Visiting Lecturer at the Institute of Anatomy, University of Würzburg. In 1984, he served at Venia legendi for Anatomy and Cell Biology, Medical Faculty, University of Würzburg. From 1985 to 2007, he served as a Professor of anatomy, Medical Faculty, RWTH Aachen University, as the Head of the Department Anatomy and Cell Biology at the Institute of Anatomy, with topics of research on cell kinetics in vivo and ex vivo/in vitro; DNA repair, in situ nick translation, and mitochondrial DNA synthesis in the course of X-irradiation, magnetic field exposure, aging, carcinogenesis, or neurodegenerative disorders; quantitative autoradiography (3H-ß-self-absorption); stereology. He has retired since October 2007. His awards include Robert Feulgen Prize of the Society for Histochemistry 1979.
