Dr. Tjalf Ziemssen

Ziemssen.jpgFrom 2000-2003 Dr. Tjalf Ziemssen worked as postdoctoral scientist at the Max-Planck-Institute for Neurobiology, Department of Neuroimmunology, Martinsried, Germany. His main research focus was on neuroimmunological topics using animal experimental and clinical approaches. After his return to Dresden in 2004 he established the neuroimmunological laboratory (NIL). Two years later (2006) Dr. Ziemssen founded the Multiple-Sclerosis-Center in Dresden where he subsequently established the stress research in cooperation with the Dr. Simone Kern. Already in 2001 Dr. Ziemssen had established the Autonomic and neuroendocrinological laboratory (ANF) in Dresden where measurements of autonomic nervous system function and cerebral circulation provide mainstay analytical techniques. In cooperation with biomedical companies (SUEMPATHIE 800, Fa. Suess Medizin-Technik, Aue, Germany), he developed the technique of trigonometric regressive spectral analysis (MTRS) for the evaluation of cardiovascular biosignals. This technique has already been successful applied in patients with extrapyramidal disorders as well as in those with multiple sclerosis. The dynamic retinal vessel analysis (Retinal Vessel Analyzer der Fa. Imedos, Jena) for measuring endothelial function was also introduced and advanced in the lab.
