• Wir trauern um PD Dr. Bernhard Bonaventura Singer

    Die Anatomie trauert um PD Dr. Bernhard Singer, der völlig unerwartet am 1. Januar im Alter von 59 Jahren verstorben ist. Bernhard war für uns nicht nur als Kollege ein Vorbild, sondern vor allem auch als Mensch. Wir werden ihm ein ehrendes Andenken bewahren.

Our lab has a broad spectrum in questions concerning reproductive biology and immunology. We investigate Ion- and proton channels as crucial molecules enabling sperm to regulate all of their key functions like motility, hyperactivation or sperm-egg communication.

Our Research / Unsere Forschung

Male reproduction:

All areas of signaling in reproduction are of interest to our group.
We identify and characterize molecules important for spermatogenesis, early and late activation of spermatozoa and cell-egg interaction. We also focus on cell-cell interaction in testis and prostate cells.

Female reproduction:

This project focuses on the detailed cellular mechanisms in female reproduction and their function and dysfunction in mouse and human. This includes therapeutical approaches to endometriosis, gene regulation of feto-maternal interaction and oocyte development and oocyte aging.

Prostate cancer:

microRNAs play an important role in post transcriptional regulation of the gene regulatory pathways of most cells. This project focuses on the importance of microRNAs for prostate cancer development and progression in animal models as well as in in-vitro experiments.

CEACAMs:

This work deals with the role of CEACAMs in infection, inflammation and wound healing. We characterize the CEACAM mediated cell-cell and cell-pathogene communication, signaling and function. Monoclonal antibodies, glycoproteins, celllines and mouse are generated as tools.
