Biography

Hans-Peter Hammes, M.D., is internationally recognized as a preeminent figure in the treatment of diabetes and its complications. As evidence of his standing in the area of diabetes, Hans-Peter was recipient of the prestigious Camillo Golgi Prize awarded by European Association for the Study of Diabetes at that organization’s 2015 annual meeting.

Hans-Peter graduated from the Medical Faculty Münster (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster, Germany) and did his medical training at the 3rd and 1st Medical Department at the University Medical Center in Giessen, Germany.

After specializing in endocrinology, diabetology and habilitation, Hans-Peter was appointed Section Head of Endocrinology at the 5th Medical Department, University Medical Center Mannheim, University of Heidelberg, Germany, a position that he currently holds.

Hans-Peter was trained in diabetes by the one of the world’s most recognized authorities on the treatment of diabetes, Prof. Konrad Federlin, at the University of Giessen, Germany.

Hans-Peter research is particularly focused on the microvascular complications that occur with diabetes, in particular the role of glycemia (blood glucose) and other reactive intermediates in the pathogenesis of retinopathy (damage to the retina of the eye that can result in blindness) that can be a consequence of diabetes.

As a consequence of these efforts, he has characterized and refined animal models of diabetic microvascular damage and has examined the possible use of drugs to to reduce such damage. His work in this area extends to his collaborating in clinical studies of the effects of such pharmacologic agents on diabetic retinopathy.

In addition, Hans-Peter has long-standing experience in diagnosis and treatment of the complications of obesity, the risk factors associated with the development of diabetes and overt diabetes itself. He has co-authored more than 200 publications on his work.

Hans-Peter has served as a member of the German guideline committee on diabetic retinopathy and maculopathy (damage to the macula of the eye), and, together with collegues from the Universities of Heidelberg and Groningen, he established an international research training platform to deal with microvascular complications that accompany diabetes.

In addition to his appointment to PharmaCyte‘s Scientific Advisory Board, Hans-Peter is also a consultant to the PharmaCyte Biotech and is a member of its international Diabetes Consortium.
