Redox metabolism in pancreatic cancer

Our research group focuses on pan­creatic carcino­genesis. We are especially interested how early carcino­genesis, tumor growth and differentiation as well as meta­stasis are regulated by meta­bolic pathways and ROS signaling.

Our inter­disciplinary approach is based on genetically engineered mouse models of pan­creatic cancer and employs methods such as tumor genomics and pro­teomics, bio­informatics, biochemistry and cell biology.

Our international research group is well embedded in the Munich bio­medical research community and in the DFG-funded Colla­borative Research Center 1321 Modelling and Targeting Pancreatic Cancer.
