Rudolf Arnold was born on March 22, 1940 in Munich, Germany. He is married to Amelie Arnold, a practicing outpatient physician, and has two children, who both studied medicine.

Rudolph Arnold is Professor of Internal Medicine and Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology and Endocrinology at the Department of Internal Medicine, Philipps University, Marburg. He obtained this position in March 1982. Currently, he is Head of the Department and Dean of the Medical Faculty.

Professor Arnold studied medicine at the Universities of Munich and Vienna and completed his postgraduate training at the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry in Munich. From 1967 he trained in internal medicine and gastroenterology under Werner Creutzfeldt at the Department of Internal Medicine, Georg-August University, Göttingen. There he established immunohistochemistry in gastroenterology, in Germany for the first time, by investigating the islets of Langerhans, the endocrine cells of the stomach and duodenum and neuroendocrine tumors. He was also involved in characterizing the effects of somatostatin on gastric and pancreatic secretion.

Professor Arnold's research interests encompass gastrointestinal hormones, the endocrine stomach, long-term consequences of achlorhydria, treatment of acid-related disorders, as well as pathophysiology, and epidemiology, and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors.

Rudolf Arnold is a member of a number of distinguished international organizations including the German Society of Internal Medicine, the German and British Society of Gastroenterology and the American Gastroenterological Association. He is fellow of theRoyal College of Physicians, London.

He is board member of a number of renowned international journals, was the Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, and is presently Editor-in-Chief of Digestion, the former "Archiv für Verdauungskrankheiten" founded in 1895 by I. Boas.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
I always wanted to combine clinical practice and clinical research, and found Werner Creutfeldt as a teacher of both.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Werner Creutzfeldt.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
This is very difficult to answer. During my career many important topics came up which influenced my research and clinical interest. Perhaps the discovery of somatostatin had the strongest influence on my clinical research.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
The regulation of antral G- and D-cell densities and contributions to treatment and the understanding of the natural growth of neuroendocrine tumors.
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
I don't know.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To be conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
What is your greatest regret?
I don't know.
How do you relax?
Classical Music: Richard Wagner, Richard Straus, Alban Berg, piano music.
What is your favorite sport?
Downhill skiing.
What is your best place in the world?
The coast of Amalfi, Italy.

"Casablanca".
What car do you drive?
BMW.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?

What book are you reading at the moment?
Sebastian Haffner: "Das Leben eines Deutschen" (Life of a German). Haffner wrote this book during his stay in the UK where he lived during the Nazi-period.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
Roy Pounder convinced me that electronic media are the future in communicating science and education
