Dr. Manfred Kohlhase
Born in Bornhöved, Schleswig Holstein, in 1950
After obtaining his licensure as pharmacist at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel and working for a few years as a senior dispensing pharmacist, four years followed as an assistant and doctoral student, culminating in a doctorate in 1987 (Dr. rer. nat.)
During this time he met his wife, a family was started (four children), and the decisive contact with anthroposophy followed. This led the family to Switzerland, where Kohlhase set up an analytical laboratory for the mistletoe extract manufacturer for Iscador. There, he was also able to successfully provide the scientific quality data and documents for the approval of the mistletoe preparations, required by the new Medicines Act for the first time.
After four years, he was appointed to the Weleda management and group management in 1995. He received numerous awards as manager (including Eco Manager of the year 2004). In 2001 he founded the Society of Anthroposophical Pharmacists in Germany (GAPiD), of which he still holds the chairmanship.
He also took over the presidency of the International Association of Pharmacists (IAAP) and is member of the Board of Directors of the Medical Section of the Goetheanum.
He is member of the Executive Council of the GFK since 2016.
