Cell and Developmental Biology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University München

Research in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology focuses on fundamental questions in the Life Sciences such as cell death and proliferation, stem cells, organellar dynamics, cation homeostasis and the control of gene expression.

To address these questions, we employ bottom-up as well as top-down approaches and state of the art technologies. As models, we are currently using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the cnidarians Hydra vulgaris, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, the vertebrate Danio rerio as well as mammalian cells.
