Dr. Milting was educated as a biologist at the University Bielefeld. His Diploma in 1990 was in collaboration with the HDZ NRW in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany, on biochemical consequences of atrial hemodynamic load in children with congenital heart disease. He received a PhD in 1994 at the Medical Faculty of the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. As a postdoc he built up a research laboratory at the Medical Faculty, Clinic of Cardiovascular Surgery, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany. In 1999 he established an experimental Lab at the HDZ NRW in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. In 2004 he became director of the Erich & Hanna Klessmann-Institute at the HDZ NRW in Bad Oeynhausen, Germany.
