Time: Tuesday, May 29th, 2018 -  1.00 p.m. s.t.
Location: CECAD, Joseph-Stelzmann-Str. 26, Lecture hall, ground floor
Host: Paul Brinkkötter (Scientific Coordinator KFO 329)

If you would like to meet with Michael Krahn before or after his talk, please contact paul.brinkkoetter@uk-koeln.de.
Short introduction of Michael Krahn’s research focus:
"In our research, we are focusing on the role of (apical-basal) polarity for the morphogenesis and functionality of epithelia and organs. Loss of polarity is closely linked to the pathogenesis of diverse diseases, such as tumorigenesis and metastasis of cancer cells on the one hand and renal failure on the other hand. Using mammalian cell culture, Drosophila as model organism and mouse models, we aim to elucidate the function of certain apical-basal polarity regulators in the context of these diseases."
