Science in the 21st century does not make a lot of sense without collaborations. Here are some – certainly not all – of our wonderful collaborators!
Dr. Jäättelä and the Linkermann lab are interested in the role of autophagy and its regulation by acid sphingomyelinase and cationic amphiphilic drugs in acute kidney injury.
Peter Vandenabeele helps us to understand the complex interconnection between various signalling pathways of regulated necrosis. Together with Peter, we try to identify the relative contribution of ferroptosis and necroptosis in human diseases.
Achim and the Linkermann lab have joined forces to understand how necrotic cells trigger immune responses, a collaboration that resulted in the concept of necroinflammation.
Tony and the Linkermann lab are investigating the role of regulated necrosis in kidney transplantation and during antibody-mediated rejection.
Six years ago, Brent has prompted us to investigate ferroptosis which he first described. An intensive collaboration followed which currently aims at identifying the diseases in which ferroptosis is of human relevance.
