Current Research

Macrostomum lignano (A) in situ hybridization of an adhesion related gene (macif1), (B) Phalloidin staining of whole mount and (B`) adhesive papilla, (C-C`) Transmission electron microscopy of adhesive organs. (Lengerer et. al 2014)

Macrostomum lignano (A) in situ hybridization of an adhesion related gene (macif1), (B) Phalloidin staining of whole mount and (B`) adhesive papilla, (C-C`) Transmission electron microscopy of adhesive organs. (Lengerer et. al 2014)

My working group is focused on developmental research in flatworms. Currently we try to identify the molecules responsible for the rapid adhesion and releasing process of Macrostomum lignano. We use molecular, immunocytochemical, histological and ultrastructure tools to investigate the morphology and function of the adhesive organs. Findings may lead to development of a new bio-inspired adhesion/release system for biomedical or industrial use.

Another focus of my group is directed towards the characterization of the stem cell system of flatworms. These stem cells - called neoblasts - are supposed to be totipotent and are responsible for the extreme regenerative capacity and the developmental plasticity of flatworms.
