Seminars & Events

Location: MPI-IE
The talk series “Forschung höchstpersönlich” was established in 2012 at the MPI-IE. Four times a year, scientists of the institute present their research within a broader context to non-scientific employees to allow better insights into the performed research. The talks are hosted by the public relations officer of the institute and are given in German. [more]

Paul Martin - Studying inflammation in wound healing and cancer

Max Planck Special Guest Lecture Series
Paul Martin is Professor of Cell Biology at the University of Bristol. He and his lab works on wound healing and has established models (Drosophila, zebrafish and mouse) to study the molecular and cellular basis of tissue repair and the associated wound inflammatory response. Currently the lab is investigating the genetics and cell biology of wound inflammation, in order to learn how best to modulate the inflammatory response to prevent fibrosis, and identifying parallels between wound and cancer-triggered inflammation. Paul Martin will give his talk “Studying inflammation in wound healing and cancer” in the Main Lecture Hall of the MPI-IE on Thursday, Nov., 23rd 2017 at 1pm. [more]

Daniel Jarosz – Deciphering the biochemical basis of phenotypic change

Max Planck Seminar

Eugene Oltz – Normal and Pathogenic Regulatory Circuits Governing Gene Expression in Human Lymphoid Cells

Max Planck Seminar
Eugene Oltz, Professor of Pathology and Immunology at the Division of Laboratory and Genomic Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis (USA), will come to Freiburg on November 10th, 2017. He and his lab at WashU are focussing on how “genetic control elements communicate with epigenetic pathways to orchestrate aberrant changes in gene expression that underlie non-Hodgkin lymphoma; gene expression programs for normal B and T lymphocyte development, and; long-range changes in chromatin required for the assembly of antigen receptor genes by V(D)J recombination.” (source: Oltz Lab page). At the MPI-IE he will give a talk entitled “Normal and Pathogenic Regulatory Circuits Governing Gene Expression in Human Lymphoid Cells”. Start is in the Main Lecture Hall of the institute at 1pm.
