[Perspectives] Gerd Burmester: enduring leader in rheumatoid arthritis

Having been Professor of Medicine at Berlin’s Charité University Clinic for the past 23 years, Gerd Burmester is among the university’s longest-standing full professors. He leads a 100-strong Department of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology, and is as committed to research in the laboratory as to work in the clinic. His team is collectively researching how to reprogramme the human immune system, with an emphasis on the molecular pathways that underpin autoimmunity across many diseases, but especially in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
