About the chair

We are interested in the mechanisms that cells use to form functional tissues during embryonic development. We apply a combination of moleculargenetic, cell biological, biophysical and microscopy techniques to our research. The main focus is the quantitative analysis of tissue differentiation and morphogenesis during the development of the fruit fly Drosophila.
