Many people have supported me in completing this work. In particular, I would like to thank my thesis supervisor Prof. DDr. Johannes Huber (Department for Gynaecological Endocrinology and Reproductive Medicine, Medical University of Vienna) and my thesis advisors Prof. Dr. Peter Schuster (Department for Theoretical Chemistry, University of Vienna) and Prof. Dr. Karl Toifl (Department for Neuropsychiatry of Children and Adolescents and Scientific Society for Dynamics, Complexity and Human Systems) for their encouragement and for fruitful discussions.
Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.
I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to study medicine. I would also like to thank my parents, grandparents and family for having taught me not only knowledge, but also values, concepts of humanity, love of art, and social and moral reasoning.
