Germ cell biology, developmental programming and epigenetic inheritance of disease

Our research group at FyFa is interested in understanding the developmental principles of the germline in health and disease. Moreover, we focus on how the parental effects are transmitted via developmental programming and germline moderation to future offspring, a process known as epigenetic inheritance. High-throughput sequencing, stem cell differentiation modeling, 3D organoid culture and transgenic mouse models are our frequently used tools among others.
