Brief Bio:
In 1989, Dr. Riethmacher graduated from University of Cologne, Germany with the diploma in Biology. From 1989 until 1993 she did her PHD at the Max-Delbrück-Centre, Cologne working on Developmental Biology and Molecular Genetics. In 1994 she graduated from the University of Cologne with PhD degree in Genetics. She then worked as a postdoc at the Max-Delbrück-Center, Berlin in the Lab of Prof. C. Birchmeier. From there she went to the Center for Molecular Neurobiology (ZMNH) in Hamburg Germany, working among other topics mainly on neuronal development as well as liver cancers. For the past 8 years she has been working at the Medical School in the University of Southampton on the topics of Neurodevelopment and regeneration as well as diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Since 2009 she was also involved in the teaching of the BM4 and BM5 medical program at the University of Southampton.

At NUSOM, Dr. Riethmacher is course lead of Fuel Metabolism in the MD program as well as course lead in Molecular mechanisms of chronic inflammation in the Master of Molecular medicine. She also is head of the scholarly projects
