Cell Migration and Clinical implications

Christian Ries

Migrating cells such as keratinocytes, fibroblasts, monocytes and mesenchymal stem cells, play key roles in multiple normal and pathological processes including wound healing, inflammation and cancer. Our research aims to gain deeper insights into molecular mechanisms that regulate the behavior and function of these cells. This may provide innovative approaches for target-directed therapeutical intervention.
