For many years he has served as senior expert pathologist (with specialty in the field of the female and male reproductive system) and as head of a pathology group in the pharmaceutical industry. As a consultant he now supports various clients by a/o microscopic slide readings of investigative, non-, and full GLP toxicity studies, by performing peer reviews and by writing regulatory expert reports on specific problematic pathology cases.
