new review article coming out soon
Interested to join our recently relocated team to work on exciting questions in mammalian tissue homeostasis? See details here
We are very happy for Martim Dias Gomes, who was awarded an EMBO Long-Term Fellowship for his next adventures in the lab of Guillaume Charras at UCL! Proud of you & wishing you lots of success!
out now: "Mechanisms of melanocyte polarity and differentiation: What can we learn from other neuroectoderm-derived lineages?"
Martim passed his PhD thesis exam with distinction. Big congrats & well deserved!! (PhD #7)
Sina delivered a great virtual PhD defense on her pigment cell research - very well done & congratulations, Dr. Knapp! (PhD #6)
Iden lab 2.0 at Saarland University
Sina's work just out: Polarity proteins promote skin pigmentation through melanin synthesis pathway. Check out in bioRxiv: https://bit.ly/2Kp4G08
contact us if you wish to work with us on exciting questions in cell biology (M.Sc. thesis to postdoc; technician w. mouse model expertise)
Massive congratulations to Martim, Soriba and Michael for their great team work - see their findings in Nat Comms - cheers! rdcu.be/bMftV
Susi rocked the show with a very convincing Master thesis defense on cellular cross-talk in the skin - congratulations!!
Kat successfully defended her Master thesis - well done, congratulations!
Soriba successfully defended his PhD thesis on his work of polarity proteins in epidermal genome integrity - cheers!
Pete Cullen and Sandra are excited to organize the next EMBO Workshop on above topic at beautiful Sant Feliu de Guixols in May 2019 - stay tuned!
Our joint paper with our neighbours Carien Niessen & team just came out - Congrats, Dominik, Susi and everybody involved - this was a marathon!
“Epithelial intercellular junctions as dynamic hubs to integrate forces, signals and cell behavior”
Pegah Seddigh joined our lab as new postdoc - welcome!!
Annika Graband joined us as new PhD student - welcome!!
Congratulations to a successful PhD defense, Noelle!
The lab's new paper in JEM reveals that polarity proteins dictate cell shape and function of neighbouring tissue-resident cells. Epidermal Par3 controls heterologous cell-cell interactions in the…
Congratulations to Noelle for her paper accepted in JID! Thanks again also to all co-authors - Cheers
A Master thesis project is available for a highly motivated life science student interested in exploring mechanisms driving mammalian epithelial cell polarity.
our new lab member "Dr. Kleefisch" - congrats to a successful defense, Dominik!
Melina successfully defended her PhD thesis in April - congratulations, Melina!
... for SFB829 and CMMC projects! On the ESDR Annual Meeting Noelle was awarded an ESDR poster prize for her project on polarity proteins in skin homeostasis. Congratulations!!
We are looking forward to welcoming old friends and new colleagues to crowd the lab these weeks: Martim will return from sunny Algarve to beautiful Cologne ...
only a few days to go: join us for the Ernst-Klenk-Symposium on "Cell polarity and cell cycle control mechanisms in development, tissue homeostasis and disease"
Esther joined us as new student assistant to take over Ricarda’s job. Welcome!
Ricarda left the group to pick up her Master’s studies in Tuebingen – have a great time there!
Noelle received a travel grant to join this year’s Annual ESDR Meeting in Rotterdam. Congratulations!
We are happy that Michael Saynisch joined us as new technician - welcome!!
If you are a highly motivated postdoc with interest in mammalian cell polarity and skin biology contact Sandra Iden, or watch out for more details coming very soon.
September 2015: Sandra and Jay will chair the next Ernst-Klenk Symposium on "Cell polarity and cell cycle control mechanisms in development, tissue homeostasis and disease"!
Melina received a poster prize at the International Symposium "Trends in Melanoma Research" - Congratulations!
