With the largest student group, three scientific advisors and the DGzPRsport South/West Center, the Freiburg site has become a focal point for DGzPRsport.
With the appointment of Adjunct Prof. Dr. Christian Tennert in addition to fellow scientific advisory board members Prof. Dr. h.c. J. Rudolf Strub and Adjunct Prof. Dr. Johan Wölber, a sports dentistry working group has been formed. The focus of the research at this site will be on the field of anti-inflammatory nutrition in sports.
The working group will examine questions on aspects of nutrition in sports dentistry, as well as concepts for elite, competitive and mass sports. This interesting field within sports dentistry has not yet been explored.
As a result, there are many questions. Johan Wölber and Christian Tennert are trained nutritional physicians of the German Society for Nutritional Medicine/German Academy for Nutritional Medicine
Christian Tennert is active in the field of professional cycling himself and has experienced success as a licensed driver in an international team. DGzPRsport welcomes this ambitious athlete, colleague and esteemed university teacher to its ranks.
