As part of an active scientific community that studies the DNA damage response (DDR) and its impact on cancer and aging, research in the lab of Matthias Altmeyer is aimed at elucidating cellular mechanisms of genome integrity maintenance and their deregulation in human disease. Here you can explore who we are and what we do. Welcome!

Breaking chromosomes: Wait until mitosis

Joint Department Colloquium and DMMD goes Sledding

We started into the year with a Joint Department Colloquium, a day full of inspiring talks, scientific discussions, great poster sessions, snacks & drinks, and games of tabletop soccer. The brainwork was balanced by a day out in the snow sledding down the mountain slopes.
