Short CV


Research topic

I am working on the generation of tumor models in the tracheal system of Drosophila for the identification of new targets for lung cancer treatment. Therefore, I manipulate different proto-oncogenes as well as tumor-supressor genes or combinations of both to generate tumor-like phenotypes of the tissue. By using these models, I am searching for unkown single compounds or combinations of compounds in different concentrations as a new treatment option.
