Biography

The work of Professor Westmeyer’s laboratory is focused on developing next generation molecular imaging and control technology for in vivo imaging of brain function. To this end, bioengineering, nanotechnological and synthetic techniques are combined with non invasive imaging methods such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging. This methodology is applied to questions in neuroscience and preclinical models of neuropsychiatric diseases. Professor Westmeyer studied medicine and philosophy in Munich and conducted his doctoral work on the molecular basis of Alzheimer’s disease in Professor Christian Haass’ laboratory in Munich before performing a part of his clinical education at Harvard Medical School. In 2005 he moved to Professor Alan Jasanoff’s laboratory at M.I.T. where he carried out postdoctoral research until he joined the faculty at TUM Medical School in 2011. Professor Westmeyer also leads a Helmholtz Young Investigators’ group on molecular imaging at the Helmholtz Center Munich.
