Prof. Dr. Stefan Anker

In his research field at BCRT, Stefan Anker investigates the mechanisms of tissue metabolism leading to sarcopenia and cachexia in chronic diseases as well as cardio-oncological issues in patients with advanced tumor disease. The development of novel treatment concepts is in the foreground, on the one hand to avoid weight loss of the chronically ill with buildup of muscle and adipose tissue, and on the other hand to develop cardiological therapies for tumor patients.
