This website is a homage to my father, professor of medicine Gerhard Volkheimer (†), and to my uncle, professor of natural sciences Wolfgang Volkheimer (†).
Both of them were recognized as outstanding and highly successful scientists who influenced the generations that followed them through their work and their discoveries. They actively taught and conducted research over many decades, continuing their scientific research and practice into a very advanced age.
Both my father and my uncle guided and inspired me as role models.
I would like to use this opportunity to thank them and to honor their life’s work by helping make that work accessible to interested readers.
Dr. Christiane Volkheimer
