The focus of research in the Department of Prof. Dr. Ralf H. Adams is to elucidate which molecular signals regulate the development of blood vessels in the body.
Research in the Department of Prof. Dr. Dietmar Vestweber is focused on the interaction between specific immune cells – the leukocytes – and the blood vessels.
Scientists in the Department of Prof. Sara Wickström, MD, PhD are investigating which processes of stem cell regulation are tissue-specific and which are more general and thus apply to most, if not all, mammalian cell types. In addition, one goal is to apply the findings to the engineering of organs such as skin in vitro.
Prof. Dr. Hans R. Schöler, together with Dr. Thomas Rauen, continues doing research in his MPG White Paper Emeritus group with a team of seven scientists since November 1, 2021.
