  • Christine Sers received her Ph.D. in Immunology from the LMU in Munich, Germany. Afterwards, she turned to the study of RAS-oncogene dependent signaling pathways. Her postdoctoral time, at the University Hospital in Zürich, Switzerland, was dedicated to the identification and characterization of class II tumor suppressor genes, down-regulated through RAS oncogene-dependent signaling cascades. In 1996, she moved to the University Hospital Charité in Berlin. Her interest in the consequences of RAS oncogene-dependent signaling in tumor cells has led her to epigenetics and resulted in the identification of a mechanistic link between RAS signaling and epigenetic suppression of genes. Currently, her main research focus is the study of genetic and epigenetic alterations in tumors that have an impact on tumor therapy and can be potentially used as diagnostic biomarkers. For this purpose, she has founded the ColoNET consortium in 2008, a research group dedicated to the study of biomarkers in colorectal cancer using high-through put technology combined with mathematical modeling of signaling pathways emerging downstream of RAS and growth factor receptors. This research will proceed until 2015 within the OncoPATH consortium and the DKTK group on molecular diagnostics of colorectal cancer. C. Sers is a member of the quality control panel of the German Society of Pathology who is in charge of high quality standards for molecular tumor diagnostics and she acts as an advisor of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research in the field of personalized medicine and systems biology.

Miscellaneous:

Markus Morkel studied Biology at the University Würzburg and received his Dr. rer. nat. in Molecular Biology from the Humboldt University, Berlin. He continued his research as a postdoc in Walter Birchmeier´s lab at the MDC, and as a research group leader in the Department of Developmental Biology at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics. His research focus is on oncogenic signal transduction during intestinal cancer initiation and progression, using transgenic mouse and organotypic tissue culture models.
