Chair of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Research Groups

AG Eilers

Martin Eilers works on mammalian Myc proteins, their mechanism of action and their role in tumorigenesis.

AG Büchel

Targeting transcription-replication conflicts in MYCN-driven neuroblastoma

AG Burger

We are interested in RNA metabolic events that modulate the stability of the human genome in crosstalk with the DNA damage response.

AG Wiegering

Armin Wiegering focuses on control of protein translation in colorectal tumorigenesis.
