Professor Geissler is a basic scientist with a primary interest in organ transplantation research. He received his PhD (1991) and postdoctoral training in transplantation immunology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Department of Surgery. Currently, he is the Director of Experimental Surgery at the University of Regensburg, Department of Surgery, where he has developed a range of interests.

Professor Geissler remains engaged in transplantation immunology research, with the aim of contributing to the development of novel tolerance induction strategies. In addition, he has developed a strong focus in his research laboratories on the study of cancer in organ transplant recipients. In particular, he has studied mechanisms by which specific immunosuppressants may be used to reduce the increasingly recognised problem of cancer in transplant recipients. He is actively engaged in translational studies aimed at bringing both of these concepts into clinical practice. In 2008, he received “The Deutscher Krebspreis” for Translational Research in cancer from the German Cancer Society.
