The Department of Developmental Pathology is devoted to translational research, connecting basic molecular biology with medical sciences. Using modern molecular biology approaches, we address questions relating to genetic regulation of embryogenesis and tumor development. Generating 'gain of function' and 'loss of function' animal models for genes involved in regulating proliferation and differentiation processes, we are able to study effects in a physiologically relevant environment. Research in our Lab is funded by grants from Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), Mildred Scheel Stiftung (Krebshilfe) the Kompetenznetz Stammzellen NRW, BONFOR and Bonner Forum Biomedizin (BFB).
