Personal profile

Scientific Career

The research group of Professor Molls (b. 1944) compares and characterizes the progression of the cells through the cell cycle, under in vitro and in vivo conditions on mouse embryos (2 to 8 cell stage). Furthermore, his research group was one of the first to show that in carcinoma in the head and neck area, tumor hypoxia correlates with an unfavorable prognosis and in patients with early stage carcinoma of the lung, stereotactic radiation therapy with few side effects leads to just as good survival rates as when surgery is performed.

Professor Molls studied medicine at the University of Freiburg and acquired his postdoctoral teaching qualification (habilitation) in the fields of embryology, radiation biology and radiation therapy. He has worked as a doctor and scientist in a rural medical practice, in Istanbul, in former Yugoslavia and at the University Clinics of Freiburg and Essen. From 1997 to 1999 he was president of the German Society for Radiooncology. He has published a textbook of radiooncology, monographs and a series of books that has been published internationally.
