As central research plattform of the University Medicine Mainz the Cell Biology Unit is studying signalling pathways which control fundamental cellular processes like migration, differentiation and cell death. In the focus of this work are components of the ubiquitome and kinome. Deregulation of these pathways often result in the development of cancer and autoimmunedisorders.
The Core Facility Microscopy provides access and training in new advanced lightmicroscopic techniques. Together with Leica, a reference Center was founded which will provide novel technical developments with scientists of the community in Mainz and in the Rhine-Main area.
