In 1995 he became CEO of the worldwide Boehringer Mannheim Group. Following the company's acquisition by Roche, Dr. Möller became head of Global Development and Strategic Marketing, Pharmaceuticals, and a member of the Executive Committee at Hoffmann LaRoche. In addition to Definiens, Dr. Möller is chairman of the board at Morphosys AG and sits on several further life sciences and diagnostics boards, including Illumina Inc., Bionostics Inc., and Vivacta Ltd. He also is chairman of the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND), a product development and implementation partnership financed in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He holds a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Kiel in Germany.
