Conduction and supervision of pre-clinical research in animal model, as well as conduction of clinical studies. Current clinical research projects include the evaluation of new electrophysiological and imaging (with particular focus on Ultrasound) techniques in patients with impaired facial nerves and vocal cord movements. Main research interests are the facial nerve reanimation and nerve regeneration. As part of Prof. Dr. Guntinas-Lichius team, he is an investigator of the multicenter BVCP endoscopic treatment standard therapy study. He is also involved in the acquisition of LEMG and intra-operative electrical laryngeal stimulation data as part of an international registry.
