Markus Leo performed his dissertation within the group "Diseases of the peripheral nervous system" (formerly: "Experimental pain research") of the NeuroScienceLab / Department of Neurology under the supervision of PD Dr. Tim Hagenacker from 2013 until 2016. His thesis entitled "Neurotoxic and neuroprotective mechanisms of cisplatin-induced polyneuropathy" was awarded with the grade "with distinction".
