Jul 2018 | Congratulations Beate!

Beate received a grant from the Austrian National Bank Anniversary Fund (Jubiläumsfonds der Österreichischen Nationalbank, ÖNB) to study fibroblast heterogeneity in human skin cancer. Congrats!

We will recruit a PhD student for this project soon, so visit our website again!

Apr 2018 | Congratulations Kif!

Beate is proud that Kif, the PhD student she supervised while she was a PostDoc in the Wattlab, published his study in Nature:

An evolutionarily conserved ribosome-rescue pathway maintains epidermal homeostasis.
Liakath-Ali et al. Nature. 2018 Apr;556(7701):376-380. doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0032-3. Epub 2018 Apr11.

The paper about the role of Pelota in ribosome-rescue and skin homeostasis was highlighted in Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology. See → Nature Reviews Research Highlights


Oct 2017 | Ernst Klenk Symposium

The Ernst Klenk Symposium in Cologne was about ‘Tissue regeneration, wound healing and fibrosis – Translating basic concepts into regenerative therapy’ this year and included a fantastic program with a keynote lecture by Sabine Werner. See → Klenk Symposium 2017.

Beate had the opportunity to present some of our newest data about fibroblast heterogeneity in wound healing and fibrosis at the Post-Klenk Minisymposium ‘Next generation female leaders pushing epidermal-dermal crosstalk’.
