Dr Claus–C. Glüer is a Professor of Medical Physics at the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Kiel, Germany. His research is aimed at the development of innovative parametric imaging techniques and their quantitative evaluation. Since 1987 when he started his postdoc in the Osteoporosis Research Group of Prof. Harry K. Genant at the University of California, San Francisco, Dr Glüer has focused his research on osteoporosis and other bone disorders. He has contributed specifically to the development of bone densitometry, quantitative ultrasound and high resolution computed tomography approaches. He has coordinated several multicentre studies including OPUS, a European project on epidemiology and optimised diagnostic assessment of osteoporosis. He is responsible for developing case finding models and strategies for the German osteoporosis guidelines. Dr Glüer also has a strong research interest in multimodal methods for molecular imaging with applications in oncology, inflammation, and skeletal research. He co-founded the Molecular Imaging North Competence Center (MOIN CC) at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, a preclinical imaging lab. At MOIN CC, multi modal imaging studies combining micro computed tomography, high-field magnetic resonance imaging, high resolution ultrasound, fluorescence and bioluminescence imaging can be carried out to study morphological, functional, cellular, and molecular processes in health and disease and to assess therapeutic effects. Dr Glüer is the current president of the German Society for Osteology (DGO) and past president of the German Academy of Bone & Joint Sciences (DAdorW). He has published more than 175 original papers, 20 books and book chapters, and holds 3 patents.
