Hilfiker-Kleiner joins prestigious academic body

Professor Denise Hilfiker-Kleiner, dean of research at Hannover Medical School (MHH) and leader of a REBIRTH unit, became a new member of Germany’s Council of Science and Humanities (WR) with effect from 1 February 2018. Federal president Frank-Walter Steinmeier appointed her to this body for a three-year term, on the strength of a joint nomination by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Max Planck Association, the German Rectors’ Conference, the Helmholtz Association, the Fraunhofer Society and the Leibniz Association.
The WR is the most important science policy advisory body in the country, providing guidance to government at both national and federal-state level. Its focus is the policy environment for research, teaching and studying in Germany.
Professor Hilfiker-Kleiner has been MHH’s dean of research since 2013. In this capacity, she advises the School’s Presidium (governing body) and Senate on research issues, chairs meetings of the Research Committee (whose members prepare decisions and recommendations on research matters) and also chairs various boards of trustees.
