The group works in the field of genetic toxicology with an emphasis on mechanisms of action of carcinogenic agents.
Topics of current projects:
- Genomic damage through endogenous hormones like insulin and genomic damage associated with obesity
- Sensitivity of hematopoietic stem cells for genomic damage
- Genotoxic and antigenotoxic effects of phyto-compounds
- Analysis of electromagnetic fields (mobile phone and terahertz-frequencies) for their potential to induce genomic damage
