2023 2023 Speaker | Circle Speaker Falling Walls Circle

I am a Physician Scientist, resident in Neurology at University Hospital Heidelberg and Team leader of the subgroup Glioma in the Winkler Lab at University Hospital Heidelberg and German Cancer Research Center. We study how brain tumor cells interconnect to a multicellular anatomical and functional network via tumor microtubes and how tumor cells use Calcium signaling to communicate. We have learned that this connectivity conveys resistance to all standard therapies, so we investigate routes to break the tumor’s connectivity and overcome therapy resistance in glioblastoma.
