- Skin & Endothelium Research Division
Head: Peter Petzelbauer
Research Area: We characterize the phenotype and function of skin endothelium in the context of inflammation and cancer.
The Skin & Endothelium Research Division SERD is a basic biomedical research laboratory. With our work at the cutting edge of dermatology we strive to contribute to a better understanding of skin-specific endothelial responses in inflammation and cancer. This understanding will lead directly to applied research projects with our partners and will ultimately have an impact on new therapies for endothelial responses to inflammation and tumor growth.
