Biography

Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg, Center for Biological Systems Analysis, Fraiburg, Germany

Anne’s lab uses Drosophila epithelia as model systems to elucidate mechanisms that respond to tissue disruption and those that restore tissue homeostasis focusing on epithelial tissues. While cellular mechanisms mediating wound healing or tumor suppression in epithelia have received much attention, little is understood about stress responses at the level of entire tissues or about signaling cascades that distinguish acute from chronic stress conditions. Anne’s lab addresses these questions focusing on different aspects of tissue homeostasis such as signaling in regeneration and cancer, signaling to chromatin, tumor suppression and mechanics of cell shape transitions.
