Cell and Tissue Biology

The groups working in the area of "Cell and Tissue Biology" focus their research on:

  • the Tumour Microenvironment and Signalling Pathways (Abraham/Zins),
  • the biology of Trophoblast Stem Cells (Latos),
  • the Identification of Novel Mutations in familial autosomal recessive and dominant Orphan Diseases (Lucas),
  • the effects of Chromatin Modifications on the Homeostasis of the Epidermis (Seiser),
  • Chromatin Organisation and its influence on gene expression during Differentiation (Schöfer/Weipoltshammer),
  • the Development and Molecular Characterization of Protein Aggregate Myopathies (PAM), in particular plectin and desmin-associated myofibrillar myopathies (Winter)
