Holdhoff received his medical degree in 2003 from Freie Universitt Berlin. He received his doctorate degree (Ph. D.) from Charit University Medicine Berlin magna cum laude. He completed his internal medicine training at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and he became board-certified in internal medicine in 2007. Holdhoff completed his medical oncology and neuro-oncology training at Johns Hopkins at the end of June 2010 and has already received ABIM board certification in Medical Oncology. He was given the 2010 ASCO Young Investigator Award for his proposal on the development of a blood-based biomarker for malignant gliomas.
Holdhoffs position will actively link the Brain Cancer program and the Ludwig Center, thereby promoting a translational research exchange between the two groups.
