Lemberg Lab

Lemberg Lab

The group of Marius Lemberg investigates cellular protein homeostasis mechanisms with a special focus on intramembrane proteolysis.
Höning Lab

Höning Lab

Stefan Höning and his group focus on the structural and functional analysis of intracellular transport mechanisms, regulation of endocytosis and organelle biogenesis and the corresponding communication.
Wagener Lab

Wagener Lab

Protein chemist and molecular biologist Raimund Wagener studies VWA domain-containing proteins of the extracellular matrix.
Eichinger Lab

Eichinger Lab

Ludwig Eichinger studies the mechanisms of autophagy and the non-canonical functions of core autophagy proteins in Dictyostelium discoideum.
Liccardi Lab

Liccardi Lab

Gianmaria Liccardi’s work focuses on the cross talk between inflammation, cell cycle and tissue homeostasis in pathophysiological diseases.

 

Associated research groups

Brachvogel Lab

Brachvogel Lab

Bent Brachvogel (speaker of FOR2722) studies how epigenetic and metabolic factors control the communication of cells with the surrounding extracellular matrix to coordinate musculoskeletal tissue development and childrens mobility.
Koch Lab

Koch Lab

The institute of Manuel Koch studies the physiological functions of connective tissues and its cells, using cell biological and biochemical methods with a focus on translational research.
