Carries out research in the fields of vascular, oncological and spinal neurosurgery.
Professor Meyer studied medicine at the Universities of Padua/Italy and Erlangen-Nürnberg and also spent time abroad at Northwestern University, Chicago, and at the State University of New York, Brooklyn. He completed his medical studies and earned his PhD at the Institute for Human Genetics at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg in 1989. He went on to train as a neurosurgeon in Tübingen, Duisburg and Bonn and spent time abroad in Zurich/Switzerland and Phoenix AZ/USA. In 1995 Professor Meyer acquired his German medical board certification in neurosurgery and became a senior physician at the Neurosurgical University Clinic in Bonn where he gained his postdoctoral teaching qualification (habilitation) in 1999. He was appointed Professor of Neurosurgery in 2001. Since 2006 Professor Meyer has held the Chair of Neurosurgery at TUM.
