Skin Homeostasis, Fibrosis and Carcinogenesis

Dr. rer. nat. Verena Lorenz

Our research group focuses on intra- and intercellular mechanisms mediating skin homeostasis, fibrosis and epithelial carcinogenesis. With this, we aim to identify new molecular targets in tumor and fibrosis therapy. We are specifically interested in

Skin Fibrosis and Tumorgeneity
  • Fibrotic Activation Patterns
  • Cytoskeleton and Adhesion Dynamics
  • Convergent Signaling Pathways/Mediators (e.g. NF-ĸB)
  • Cell Cycle Regulation
Tumor-Microenvironment
  • Stromal Cell Relevance
  • Crosstalk of Stromal and Tumor Cells (2D & 3D Model Systems)
  • Mechanisms driving Tumor Invasiveness
