Dr Stefan Anker was born in East Berlin, Germany in 1965 and has been a doctor for almost thirty years. In his own words, he “never considered doing anything other than medicine.” He is a prodigious researcher who has published over 950 original papers, reviews and editorials.
Dr Anker has also won a number of awards, including the 2018 Copernicus Prize from the German DFG and Polish FNP. Working with both systems in the United Kingdom and Germany has been enjoyable for him because he loves the freedom that it provides as an academic. He would like to play more tennis or golf if he had the time, and enjoys collecting sculptures; particularly anything “skinny or thin.”
