Scientific Focus

Systems Medicine of Chronic Lung Disease (Schiller Lab)

In the Schiller lab we aim at characterizing the extracellular niche of the distal airways and lung parenchyma and its function in regulation of tissue homeostasis, regeneration upon injury, and metastatic colonization. Using systems biology tools, such as mass spectrometry driven proteomics and single cell expression analysis, in combination with mouse models of lung disease we wish to identify fundamental molecular principles of tissue/organ regeneration, homeostasis and fibrosis.

 

MASTER THESIS PROJECT AVAILABLE: `Dissecting mesenchymal lineage heterogeneity in murine and human lungs´

PHD PROJECT AVAILABLE: `The Human Lung Cell Atlas´ - the project will be 50:50 wet-lab (single cell transcriptomics and imaging) and computational (Computational methods tailored to the analysis of single cell -omics data). The wet-lab part will be done in the Schiller lab and the computational part in the Theis lab (Prof Fabian Theis, Institute of Computational Biology @ HMGU)
