David Laszlo Tarnoki MD PhD

Budapest, Hungary

I was born in 1983 in Budapest, Hungary. I graduated from the Semmelweis University Faculty of Medicine in 2008. After my graduation, I received a radiology residency position at the Semmelweis University which I completed in 2013. I currently work as a radiologist specialist and assistant lecturer in the Semmelweis University Department of Radiology and Oncotherapy and as a guest doctor at the Karitasklinik St. Theresia in Saarbrücken, Germany. Between 2010 and 2013, I completed my PhD studies in the Semmelweis University Doctoral School in respiratory twin studies. I am one of the founder of the Hungarian Twin Registry. I speak English and German. In the last years, I have studied and conducted research in many countries of the world, including in USA (Buffalo, Houston), Italy, Germany, UK, Brazil, Cyprus, Turkey etc. thanks to more than ten scholarships. In the autumn of 2012 and in the framework of the European Society of Radiology fellowship program (European School of Radiology) I spent three months in Oxford, UK with the mentorship of Professor Gleeson, a world-known thoracic radiologist studying interstitial lung diseases. I gave more than 130 presentations in mainly international conferences and have published more than 100 scientific papers (including abstracts, impact factor currently 90). I received 18 awards and some recognitions from international societies including the Markusovszky Award (e.g. Society for Vascular Ultrasound - Alex Chao MD Young Investigator Award, European Respiratory Society - Annual Inflammatory Airway Diseases and Clinical Allergology award, Balázs Julianna and Walter Dezső Award of Semmelweis University Baráti Kör, etc.). I am the member of the Kerpel Fronius program since 2011. Besides my clinical work I teach Hungarian, English and German groups for radiology and I am the mentor of over 10 medical students. I am the treasurer of the Hungarian Medical Association of America Hungary Chapter since 2010 and have been the liaison and alternate board member of HMAA from 2014. In the recent years, I was actively involved in the anti-tobacco research of the HMAA led by Dr. Laszlo Mechtler which led to the total smoking ban of the indoor public places in Hungary in 2011. My hobbies include gardening, listening to music, winemaking and traveling. I am the Hungarian representative of the Resident Trainee Forum of the European Society of Radiology and became the public member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 2014.
