Who we are

Our research is focused on the JAK-STAT core cancer pathway. We explore the molecular functions of JAK kinases and STAT transcription factors to gain insights into mechanisms controlling cellular proliferation/survival, gene transcription and epigenetic regulation, in the context of cancer initiation and progression. Within the lab, we primarily study hematopoietic cancer with a focus on T cell neoplasia, acute myeloid leukemia and myeloproliferative neoplasms.

Why/How are we going Green

Climate change is not only a threat, it is above all an opportunity to create a healthier, greener and cleaner planet which will benefit all of us. Changes are urgently needed and can already start on a small scale. Each of us can contribute to these changes, which is the reason why we are part of the Green Labs Austria in order to reduce our ecological footprint on as many levels as possible. Our main aim is to recycle plastic that we are using on a daily basis in our lab as well as to lower our energy consumption.
