Our paper entitled ‘Lineage identity and location within the dermis determine the function of papillary and reticular fibroblasts in human skin’ was accepted for publication in The Journal of Investigative Dermatology today.
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!
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
Elsevier released an exciting book about ‚Skin Tissue Models’ on November 21st, which includes a book chapter from Ana & Beate about how to grow hair in the dish. We are proud that one of our images made it onto the cover! 🙂
In the November Issue, the FEBS News magazine published a short feature about Beate, who had received a FEBS Long-Term Fellowship for her postdoctoral studies in 2011 and a grant from the FEBS Fellowship Follow-up Research Fund in 2016, which supported her to set up her own lab in Vienna.

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’.
