Sucharit Bhakdi (born November 1, 1946 in Washington, D.C.) is a German immunologist. He is Professor emeritus of the University of Mainz, where he served as the chair of the department of medical microbiology and hygiene from 1991 to 2012.[1] From 1990 to 2012, he served as Editor in Chief of Medical Microbiology and Immunology.

Scientific work

Bhakdi is known for his work on the complement system, a part of the human immune system, a work for which he was awarded the Aronson Prize in 2001, as well as several other scientific prizes. He later applied his results to develop a new theory about the nature of atherosclerosis.

Response to novel coronavirus

In 2020, Bhakdi became known to a wider audience by his criticism of the response to a novel type of coronavirus. Together with his wife Karina Reiß, he published a book with the title Corona Fehlalarm? that became a best seller.[2][3] Although the book focuses on the situation in Germany, it was translated into English under the title Corona, False Alarm?.
