ERC-Consolidator grant for Peter Friedl

Friedl, Peter

Peter Friedl, department of Cell Biology has received an ERC grant (2 Mio EUR) to study tumor biology in live animal models using the novel technology of multiphoton microendoscopy.

With the project partners LaVision Biotec/Bielefeld and Gintech/Jena, he will develop and validate new microobjectives that allow an "optical biopsy" into tumors. This device will then be used to map cancer progression, metastatic evasion and therapy response. The project will deliver novel imaging technology and insight into tumor cell functions that cannot be reached by current microscopy techniques.
