About Claudia Traidl-Hoffmann
For Claudia Traidl-Hoffmann, practicing dermatologist, ski-ing instructor, singer, musician, author, wife, mother of two, and a passionate environmental health scientist, the word “multifaceted” is almost an understatement. Driven by a strong sense of empathy she hopes to literally “heal the world” by preventing diseases altogether.
Her work as a physician-scientist focuses on how humans interact with their environment which then determines the state of health or illness in a person. To this end, Claudia and her team were able to revolutionize the idea of how allergies arise and found new drivers for allergic immune responses in pollen.
In addition, Claudia wants to spread awareness of the effects of climate change and what that would mean for the health of humanity at large. She addresses the issue in her book, Überhitzt, and goes on to explain how climate change must be tackled at the earliest before it is too late. She is convinced that she has what it takes to drive this change!
