Prof. Christian Kurts


I am a cancer researcher trained in cell bi-ology, immunology and molecular oncolo-gy. I have made major contributions to the discoveries that defects in cell death can cause cancer, autoimmune disease and impair the response of cancers to chemo-therapy. My current work aims to reach a detailed understanding of the molecular control of programmed cell death. My team is ex-ploiting this knowledge to develop novel treatments for cancer and autoimmune diseases that directly activate the cell death machinery.
