Since 2004 I have focused my work on the effect of acupuncture in patients with spinal cord injury. As I observed clinical improvements, my sister Anja Moldenhauer, MD, PhD, and I decided to start a research program to investigate the mechanisms caused by acupuncture that help patients with spinal cord injury. This is how the project ‘mobilization of stem cells following acupuncture’ came to life. In cooperation with the Charité Berlin we could finish and publish the first stage of the study.

We continue our research with the support of the ‘Deutsche Ärztegesellschaft für Akupunktur’ (DÄGfA).
