Florian Karreth from the Moffitt Cancer Center visited us at the ASCTR and gave a talk on the interaction of non-coding RNAs and oncogenic signaling in melanoma entitled “Maximizing melanoma modeling in the mouse”.
In December, the Lichtenberger Lab was awarded for their publication ‘Lineage identity & location within the dermis determine the function of papillary and reticular fibroblasts in human skin’ by the Austrian Society of Dermatology and Venerology.
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
