Dr. Carsten G. Bönnemann

Senior Investigator in Neuromuscular and Neurogenetic Disorders at the NINDS National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke, Bethesda, MD (USA)

Dr. Bonnemann received his MD from the University of Freiburg and completed pediatric training in Germany. The pediatric neurology residency at MGH/Harvard was followed by postdoctoral work with Dr. Louis Kunkel at Children’s Hospital Boston, who works on the molecular genetics of muscular dystrophy.

In 2002, he joined the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia/University of Pennsylvania as an Assistant Professor, Co-Director of the Neuromuscular Program, and Director of the Neurogenetics Clinic.

He joined NINDS in 2010 as a Senior Investigator and Section Chief for Childhood Neuromuscular and Neurogenetic Disorders.

Dr. Bonnemann was a Pew Fellow in Biomedical Sciences. He received the 2009 Derek Denny Brown Neurological Scholar Award.

Research in Dr. Bonnemann’s laboratory revolves around the molecular mechanisms underlying early-onset muscle disease (congenital muscular dystrophies, congenital myopathies, and reductive body myopathy). The objective of the laboratory is to identify the genetic and cellular mechanisms in these conditions in order to develop strategies for molecular-based treatments.
