DPU - Symposium 2022

Medica l Image Ana lysis & Ar t i f icia l Intel l igence Symposium 2022 Nr. 20: Prof. Dr. Christoph Kleber: Accelerated Combinatorial Medical Material Development through Machine Learning from Theoretical and Experimental Data Sets Curriculum Vitae: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christoph Kleber, received his Diploma in Physical and Theoretical Chemistry in 1999 and his PhD in the field of Analytical Chemistry in 2002 at the Technical University Vienna. He was appointed as Professor for Biotechnology at the University of Applied Sciences in Krems in 2005 and finished his habilitation in Materials Science in 2009. In 2010 he was appointed as Scientific Director and CEO of Austria’s Centre of Excellence for Electrochemical Surface Technology (CEST) in Wiener Neustadt. Since 2016 he is visiting professor at the JKU Linz at the Institute of Prof. Hassel and since 2019 Professor for Chemistry at the DPU. His scientific work focused on the interface between various materials and their ambient atmospheres to elucidate the mechanisms of (bio) degradation at a molecular level. He was project leader and/or partner in 21 grants, published 58 articles (h-index 18, Original Research Papers (52), Reviews (1), Book Chapters (5)), and 3 proceedings. Including COMET projects he was responsible for the coordination of 44 industrial and 29 University partners in a few dozen projects with an overall budget of approximately 40. Mio. Euros in the last 10 years. Curriculum Vitae: Univ.-Prof. Achim Walter Hassel completed his studies in Chemistry and Physics at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, German in 1993. In 1997 he attended a full time language course at Japonicum at LSI-NRW as a fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and subsequently completed his Post Doctorate at the University of Hokkaido, Sapporo, Japan as fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung. From 1999–2009 he was Head of the Electrochemistry and Corrosion group at the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research, Düsseldorf, Germany. A guest professorship at the National Institute for Materials Research (NIMS), Tsukuba, Japan followed as well as becoming a fellow of the International Cgenter for Young Scientists. From 2007–2009 he was Scientific Director of the International Max Planck Research School for Surface and Interface Engineering in Advanced Materials. He continued as a Scientific freelancer as researcher, project coordinator and counsellor at the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research Düsseldorf, Germany from 2009–2013. He held the position of Head of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Combinatorial Oxide Chemistry from 2013 until 2019. Currently he holds the position of Chair in Chemical Technology of Inorganic Materials at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria.
