Project Area A
Cellular damage response
to extracellular cues
Area A hosts projects that study cell intrinsic mechanisms that sense, adapt and respond to damage. Experimental work focusses on elucidating metabolic, redox and epigenetic principles, mechanisms of protein quality control as well as emerging signalling mediators and their regulators in order to identify novel paradigms in damage control.
Project Area B
Damage control in the microenvironment
Projects in Section B analyse damage control in a multicellular context and concentrate on how physiological cellular crosstalk is organized and how damage can lead to reprogramming of different cell populations.
Our central support projects provide state-of-the-art experimental techniques.
