Stephanie Grünewald PhD FRCPCH,

Grünewald joined the Consultant team of Inherited Metabolic Diseases (IMDs) at Great Ormond Street Hospital in 2004. She is also a Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Child Health.

After having completed her paediatric training in Düsseldorf, she commenced her sub-speciality training in Inborn Errors of Metabolism. She had the opportunity to be trained in four leading European Metabolic Centres, including Düsseldorf/Germany, Nijmegen/The Netherlands, Leuven/Belgium and London/UK. Whilst being on a postdoctoral and clinical fellow position at the University of Leuven, her main clinical and basic research interest was focused on the emerging field of congenital disorder of glycosylation  (CDG), resulting in the discovery of several new disorders. She was granted a Marie Curie Fellowship, and completed her Habilitation at the University of Essen / Germany and finalised her PhD on “Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation – Clinical and Molecular Studies” in 2006 at the University of Nijmegen. Prior to her appointment in GOSH she worked as a Consultant in Neuropaediatrics with special interest in Metabolic Medicine and Reader at the University Hospital in Essen/Germany. 

In her current position, she combines clinical and academic work on a broad spectrum of IMD. Dr Grünewald is Chief and Principle Investigator of several clinical trials and international registries and is a member of various International disease specific IMD networks and advisory boards.
