Professor Hartwig Siebner
Hartwig Roman Siebner is head of the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre and full professor for Precision Medicine at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. He is a board certified neurologist and has worked as research fellow at Technische Universität München (TUM, Germany, 1995-2002) and University College London (UCL, UK, 2000-2002), and professor / principal investigator at Christian Albrechts University Kiel (CAU, Germany) and NeuroImage-Nord (Hamburg-Kiel-Lübeck, Germany, 2002-2008).
Hartwig Roman Siebner is a brain network scientist and combines functional and structural brain imaging with interventional protocols such as non-invasive transcranial brain stimulation (NTBS), pharmacological challenges, or training. He uses this combined intervention-mapping approach to infer causal brain dynamics in motor and cognitive brain networks and to gain insights into brain plasticity as well as the pathophysiology of brain diseases (movement disorders, multiple sclerosis). Combining EEG and TMS, his recent research is focusing on Biophysically Adjusted, State-Informed Brain Stimulation (BASICS). He also systematically explored peripheral co-stimulation during NTBS and its implication for the scientific use of NTBS. Current research is geared to transform NTBS into a precision therapy for personalized treatment of brain circuit disorders.
