Biography

Dr Thomas Ritter leader of research programme, was recruited by REMEDI as a lecturer in Gene Therapy Medicine and assumed his position in March 2005. Dr. Ritter has over 15 year experience in the field of gene therapy in organ transplantation. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1994 from the Max-Planck Research group of Immunology/Rheumatology at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany where he worked on the molecular characterization of T cell receptors specific for human collagen type II. Having completed his Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Marseille, Center of Immunology in 1995, Dr. Ritter took up a faculty position at the prestigious Charité University Hospital in Berlin, Germany. He worked as a leader of the gene therapy programme in experimental transplantation in the Institute of Medical Immunology under the directorship of Prof. Dr. H.-D. Volk. His research focused on the development of efficient viral gene-transfer systems for application in transplantation medicine. Dr. Ritter was successful in obtaining funding from the German Research Foundation and the Ministry of Health and Research as well as from industry (Schering). His teaching duties in this position included lectures and courses in cellular and molecular immunology for biology and medical students. Dr. Ritter completed his 'Habilitation' (postdoctoral lecture qualification) in Immunology in 2002 followed by a promotion to assistant professor in 2003.
Since my appointment in 2005 I was successful in obtaining substantial funding from several funding agencies including Science Foundation of Ireland (SFI), Health Research Board (HRB) and The Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET). I have published 71 original articles in peer-reviewed journals (27 articles since my appointment at NUI, Galway), 16 reviews, 1 editorial, 2 book chapters. Moreover I have given more than 30 invited lectures, seminars and oral presentations. I am on the Editorial Board of Transplantation and serve as a referee for many journals including Biomaterials, Gene Therapy, Invest. Ophthal. Vis. Sci. (IOVS), Transplantation, Transplant Immunology, Transplant International, BMC Ophthalmology. I am also grant assessor for the German Research Foundation (DFG), Wellcome Trust and Action Medical Research (UK) and NUI Galway, Millenium Funds, Minor project applications. I am also a member of the REMEDI executive management committee. I am member of the German Society of Immunology (DFGI), Irish Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ISGCT, founding member) and the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ESGCT).
