Karin Strittmatter

Karin is a technician in the Cancer Metastasis Lab. Before joining the group, she was working with Dr. Marneros at the Cutaneous Biology Research Center at MGH and Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, USA focusing on molecular events and therapies in the context of age-related macular degeneration and neovascularization (Strittmatter, Pomeroy & Marneros, American Journal of Pathology, 2016). Prior to that, she was a member of the Signal Transduction and Growth Control group at the DKFZ in Heidelberg, where she was working with multiple animal and cell-based models of tumor growth and angiogenesis (Braun et al., International Journal of Cancer, 2014). Karin was a lab manager in the group of Gerhard Christofori at the University of Basel investigating the roles of growth factor receptors and adhesion molecules during angiogenesis (Albrecht et al., PLOS ONE 2011; Schomber et al., Mol. Cancer Therapeutics, 2009; Crnic et al., Cancer Research, 2004). She was trained as a Pharmabiology Technician at the Novartis Training Center, Muttenz.
