Martin Reincke: President-Elect 2019-2021

He studied medicine and graduated at the University of Cologne in 1985, defended his M.D thesis in 1986 and trained there in internal medicine and endocrinology. Early 1990, he went to the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, USA, as postdoctoral fellow and continued his basic, molecular and clinical research training, receiving significant input by the mentorship of Prof. George Chrousos. Thereafter, he returned as clinical endocrinologist to the University of Würzburg, Germany, joining Prof. Allolio, who had started to build-up a thriving and rapidly growing endocrine department. This intense research period led to a major progress in clinical and translational research in the field of the HPA axis. Soon, the team intensively networked with leading groups in Italy, France, UK, and other parts of Europe and this research has eventually funded by the EU in the framework of the European network for the Study of Endocrine Tumors (ENSAT). Creation of ENSAT provided a seminal and fruitful basis for the continuous flow of clinically relevant discoveries and high-ranking publications. Various national and European grants followed. Between 1998 and 2004, Martin became Professor and Chief of Endocrinology at the Medical Department of the University of Freiburg. In 2004, he was appointed Professor and Chairman of the prestigious Department of Internal Medicine at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich. Martin was a member of the Executive Committee of the German Endocrine Society, the European Society of Clinical Investigation, and President of the German Endocrine Society (2014-2017). For the European Society for Endocrinology, he has served as member of the Executive Committee Member between 2010 and 2013 and was chair of the Program Organising Committee for the joint congress of the International Society of Endocrinology and European Society of Endocrinology in Florence in 2012. Martin has organised and co-organised many European and international meetings including several European Congresses of Endocrinology and specialised symposia in Cushing’s syndrome and primary aldosteronism (PIPA, IMPROCUSH). Over the years, Martin received several prestigious awards and scholarships, among others the highest scientific award of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Endokrinologie in 1995, the Schoeller-Junkmann Award. He has been elected as member of the German Academy of Natural Scientists, Leopoldina, in 2008 (German Academy of Sciences), received the prestigious ERC Advanced Grant in 2016 (2.5 mio €), and has been awarded as Distinctive Academic Teacher at his Munich University in 2014. He has been elected as member of the Germany Research Council DFG in 2016, the major research funding body in Germany. Martin has served on several Editorial Boards (JCEM, Hormones), is reviewer of all major journals including Nature Medicine and Genetics, NEJM, Lancet, and Lancet E&D, and is ad hoc reviewer for funding agencies in Italy (AIFA, AIRC), France (ANR, INSERM), UK (BBSRC, MRC), Switzerland (SNF), Israel (GIF), and Australia (NHMRC). He has edited several books and has published more than 400 articles in major international journals, his h-index is 70. Over the last decade his clinical and basic studies have been supported by grants amounting to more than 10 Mio € from various non-profit agencies.
