Georg Rose, received his Ph.D. in Statistical Physics from the University of Düsseldorf, Germany for his work in the area of field theory and mean-field approximation. As a post-doc in the Department for Neurology he has been working on brain research, modeling the behavior of cultured hippocampal neuron-networks. A second focus was development of strategies for stroke management. In 1995 he moved to industrial research, becoming member of the Philips Research Laboratories in Aachen, Germany - working in the area of tomographic and functional imaging. He also continued his work on stroke management focusing on clinical decision support systems and telemedicine applications. He managed several industrial projects, partially distributed over three continents. Since 2006 he is Full Professor and chair for Healthcare Telematics & Medical Engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke-University in Magdeburg, Germany. The main research areas are: functional imaging during neuro-interventions, intelligent madical catheters, clinical decision support systems, strategies in stroke treatment, intelligent telemedicine. In 2012 together with three colleagues he got the Otto-von-Guericke Research Award for the succesful research and the composition of the focus area Medical Engineering.
