Claus-Christian Glüer is Professor of Medical Physics at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, Germany. He is the head of the Section Biomedical Imaging of the Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology at the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel. For over 25 years, Professor Glüer has focused his research on musculoskeletal disorders, specifically osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases, and bone metastases. His research is aimed at the development of innovative parametric imaging techniques and their quantitative evaluation. Professor Glüer has contributed specifically to the development of bone densitometry, quantitative ultrasound methods and high-resolution quantitative computed tomography approaches. He has coordinated several multicentre studies, including the OPUS study, a European multicentre study involving 3000 participants followed for more than 6 years. Professor Glüer has been responsible for developing case-finding models and strategies for the German osteoporosis guidelines of the Dachverband Osteologie.

Professor Glüer is particularly interested in multimodal technologies for molecular imaging, with applications in oncology, inflammation and skeletal research. He co-founded the Molecular Imaging North Competence Center (MOIN CC) at the Christian-Albrechts-Kiel University, a preclinical imaging lab. Professor is President of the European Calcified Tissue Society, and past-President of the German Society for Osteology, of the German Academy of Bone and Joint Sciences and represent the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel at the Board of Life Science Nord. Professor Glüer has published more than 175 articles in peer-reviewed journals, 20 books and book chapters, h-index: 55, and he holds three patents.
