Martin Fassnacht is Professor of Internal Medicine/Endocrinology and Chair of the Department of Endocrinology and Diabetes at the University Hospital in Würzburg. He studied medicine at the School of Medicine at the universities of Saarbrücken and Würzburg and completed his medical training in Würzburg. In-between he joined the Duke University in North Carolina as postdoctoral fellow for 2 years. In 2012, he was appointed as professor of endocrinology at the University of Munich and since 2014 he is the successor of Bruno Allolio in Würzburg. Martin served on several boards of national and international endocrine societies including the Clinical Committee of ESE. He has been a founding member, working group head, and chair of the European Network for the Study of Adrenal Tumours (ENSAT). Furthermore, he had been one of the founding members of the supporting organisation for young researchers in endocrinology (YARE), the German predecessor of EYES. His scientific interests mainly relate to endocrine tumours, adrenal and pituitary diseases, and obesity. Martin has authored more than 280 publications in high-ranking international journals and has received a number of awards, including the European Journal of Endocrinology Award 2014.
