Biography

Frank Rühli studied Medicine at the University of Zurich. After graduation he worked at the Institute of Diagnostic Radiology, University-Hospital Zurich. He was awarded an International Postgraduate Research Scholarship to undertake a PhD at the Biological Anthropology and Comparative Anatomy Research Unit, Anatomical Sciences, University of Adelaide (Australia), where he also held a full-time lectureship.

He has worked at the Institute of Anatomy in the University of Zürich since 2003. In 2007 he finished his habilitation (“DSc”) in the field of anatomy/histology.

He co-heads the “Swiss Mummy Project”, headed the Centre for Evolutionary Medicine (ZEM) from 2010–2014 and is now Director of the Institute of the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine (IEM).

In 2014, he has been appointed to the Membership Committee of the American Association of Anatomist (AAA). He is also curatorium board member of the moulage collection of the University of Zurich and the University Hospital and President of the Scientific Board of The Neolithic Iceman (South Tyrol Museum of Archeology Bozen). Frank Rühli was also a.o. Vice-President of the Swiss Society of Anthropology.

Frank Rühli gained teaching and course coordinator experience at multiple universities in gross anatomy; histology; paleopathology; biomedical imaging and biological anthropology. He has supervised multiple PhD, BScHons, MD, DVM and DMD dissertations; he is Associated Editor, Editor and Editor–in-Chief of six peer-reviewed journals.

Frank Rühli conducts extensive research a.o. on clinical anatomy, paleoradiology, and paleopathology (especially ancient mummy studies).
