Matthias Kopp elected President of GPP
Prof. Matthias Kopp is new President of the Society of Pediatric Pneumology (GPP). He was elected at the 40th Annual Congress of the GPP in Vienna.

Rabe became President of the German Respiratory Society (DGP) in March 2018 (see news article here), both respiratory societies are led by ARCN physicians.
Matthias Kopp is professor for pediatrics at University Lübeck and Director of the Section of Pediatric Pneumology and Allergology at the University Clinic Schleswig-Holstein (Campus Lübeck). His work in the DZL is focused on the pediatric arm of the ALLIANCE asthma cohort as well as the Disease Area Cystic Fibrosis.
