Christian Grimm, Ph.D.
Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich

Christian Grimm joined the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany in 2011 and was named Professor of Molecular Pharmacology and Principal Investigator of the Endolysosomal Ion Channel Lab in 2018. With a focus on electrophysiology, cell and chemical biology, Grimm has developed multiple tools and techniques to understand the role of intracellular ion channels in rare and common disorders. His extensive training from top academic institutes and experience in the pharmaceutical sector has allowed him to develop highly selective small molecule probes that modulate ion channels. He received his Ph.D. from the Free University of Berlin, Germany, followed by postdoctoral research fellowships at Harvard University and Stanford University, USA (2004-2009).
