Condolences to the family of Dr. Monika Ehrhart-Bornstein and her friends


After a long and serious illness the Dresden molecular biologist Dr. Monika Ehrhart-Bornstein passed away on October 24, at the age of 56. All colleagues from CRTD would like to express their deepest condolences.

Dr. Monika Ehrhart-Bornstein has been a member of the CRTD network since 2008. She was a very respected and excellent scientist in her field and her research contributed significantly to the successful development of CRTD’s research area, neurodegenerative diseases. CRTD will remember her as a very passionate and committed researcher with the ambitious goal to treat nervous diseases like Morbus Alzheimer or Morbus Parkinson by using reprogrammed stem cells derived from the adrenal gland from diseased patients.

Her early death is a great loss for all of us.

Our deepest sympathy goes to Monika Ehrhart-Bornstein's family in this time of grief.

Prof. Dr. Elly Tanaka
Director of the CRTD
