Robert Schleip is a German scientist, biologist and psychologist. His area of ??expertise is fascia research.
He graduated in psychology from the University of Heidelberg in 1980, followed by training as a Feldenkrais teacher in 1984-1987 and a certified advanced rolfer in 1977-1983. In 2006, he received a doctorate in human biology from the University of Ulm. His dissertation on active fascial contractility received the Vladimír Janda Award for musculoskeletal medicine.
Schleip was a co-initiator of the first International Fascine Congress in 2007 at Harvard Medical School in Boston (1st Fascia Research Congress), which achieved a breakthrough for modern fascia research as well as subsequent congresses. He was a member of the Scientific Committee for all events in this series.
Schleip has been the director of Fascia Research Group, a division of neurophysiology at the University of Ulm since 2008. Together with sports doctor Jürgen Steinacker, he was and is the organizer of the conference "CONNECT - connective tissue in sports medicine" in 2013 and 2017.
He is also Chief Research Officer of the European Rolfing Association, Vice President of the Ida P. Rolf Research Foundation and a member of the board of the Fascia Research Society.
As a lecturer, he lectures in the fields of physiotherapy, orthopedics and the application of science to training. He is the author and editor of professional publications on the subject of fascia and often publishes in the media on this topic.
We are "connected" with Robert not only by the fascia, but also by the long-term cooperation, which is reflected in our regular participation in our conferences and events.
