DanStem Seminar by Stefan Luschnig

DanStem Seminar

Dr. Stefan Luschnig, University of Zurich, Institute of Molecular Life Sciences IMLS

Dr. Stefan Luschnig research addresses developmental, cellular, molecular, and functional aspects of epithelial biology. In particular, his research focuses on understanding how the dimensions and shapes of epithelial tubes are controlled. The correct size and shape of tubular epithelia is critical for the function of vital organs, such as our lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels. While tubule size is precisely controlled during normal organ development, one hallmark of diseases, such as Polycystic Kidney Disease, is the loss of the capacity of epithelial cells to regulate tubular dimensions. 

Title: From genes to organs: Shedding light on epithelial tube development in Drosophila

Time: 14 January 2015, 12:00
Place: CPR Seminar room Panum Building 6, 2nd floor
