Scientific Career

Prof. Klingenspor (b. 1961) researches the mechanisms of metabolic regulation with the aim of identifying how nutrition affects the body’s energy balance, i.e. the balance between energy intake and energy expenditure. His work centers on examining regulation of the efficiency of energy conversion in mitochondria as the powerhouses of eukaryotic cells.

After studying biology (1994), Prof. Klingenspor did his doctorate at Philipp University of Marburg. Thanks to a research grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG) (1995/96), he went to work in the laboratory of Prof. Karen Reue at West Los Angeles VA Medical Center (USA). He returned to Marburg to complete his lecturer qualification (2001) in zoology and animal physiology. He became deputy head of that university’s Department of Animal Physiology (2004). In 2007, he accepted TUM’s offer of the Chair of Molecular Nutritional Medicine. Prof. Klingenspor is an appointed expert in various German and international research organizations. He is the co-editor of the Journal of Comparative Physiology B, Obesity Facts, Physiological Reviews und Scientific Reports.
