SFB 829 – Molecular Mechanisms regulating Skin Homeostasis 

The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 829 “Molecular Mechanisms regulating Skin Homeostasis” is an interdisciplinary research centre of excellence funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

The overall goal of the SFB 829 is to understand how molecular and cellular interactions within and between the different skin compartments are established and maintained to ensure homeostasis and to understand the key pathways by which challenges disturbing this communication cause skin disease.

The SFB829 consists of scientists from the Department of Dermatology, Institute of Biochemistry II, Max-Planck-Institute for Biology of Ageing, Cluster of Excellence: Cellular Stress Responses in Aging-Associated Diseases (CECAD), Institute for Developmental Biology, Institute for Genetics, Centre for Molecular Medicine Cologne (CMMC), Clinic IV for Internal Medicine and the German Sport University, Cologne. Thus this SFB builds an excellence interdisciplinary research environment.

The SFB 829 provides 20 scientific and 4 central projects. The SFB started in 2009 with the first period (2009-2012) and its funded continued during a second period (2012-2016). By the beginning of 2017 the third period of funding started and will end in 2020.
