In July, Dr Claudius Micha Nübling became member of the Advisory Board of ECA's Rapid Microbiological Methods Working Group.
Dr Nübling has been with the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut (the German Federal Institute for Vaccines and Biomedicines in Langen) since 1990. Since 1996, he has been Deputy Head of Virology Divison. He is member of different committees like the Biological Reference Preparations (BRP) Program of the European Pharmacopeia, the OMCL Proficiency Testing Program of the EDQM, the WHO Working Group on Hepatitis and HIV Diagnostic Kits, and the EU Working Group on Common Technical Specifications (CTS) for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical devices.
Dr Nübling will represent the Paul Ehrlich Instiut in our Working Group and succeed our longstanding member Dr Thomas Montag who has suddenly passed away this spring. We are pleased that Dr Nübling has accepted our invitation and that the PEI will be still in a close contact with ECA and their activities.
