    Chair of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

    Welcome to our Department

    Our research focuses on the control of cell growth and proliferation and its deregulation in human tumors.

    We study transcription factors such as Myc and SREBP proteins that control gene expression programs involved in central biological processes such as cell cycle progression, apoptosis, protein translation and metabolism.

    Our work aims to understand how these factors work and how they are regulated and to use this knowledge for novel strategies for tumor therapy.

    The department is part of the
    Comprehensive Cancer Center Mainfranken.
