Welcome to the Ott lab @ University of Freiburg

On the following pages we have assembled some information on different aspects of our recent research, teaching and services. Just follow the different links from the menu bar. Our research focus is on membrane dynamics and signalling during plant-microbe interactions. Here, we study the molecular mechanisms that enable host cells to keep strict control over…

Interim professorship for Marco Trujillo

We are happy to announce that we were able to recruit Dr. Marco Trujillo who is currently the head of a junior group at the IPB in Halle (Germany) as an interim professor to Freiburg. With his expertise in plant-pathogen interactions and protein ubiquitination, he is a great fit here. Welcome!

Conference of the CRC924

We would be happy to see you at the conference “Plant Biology for the Next Generation“organized by the collaborative research center (CRC) 924, which will be held from October 11-13 at the Technical University of Munich. Being part of this exciting cluster and considering the great list of speakers we are sure that it will…

CIBSS cluster successful

The initial proposal for the “Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies” (CIBSS) has been successful in the first round of the national Excellence Strategy 2017. This competition is headed by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft; DFG) and aims to identify novel and innovative local clusters. CIBSS will study signalling across different spatial and temporal…

Ott Lab on Facebook

Our new Facebook page is online now. You can find us as “Dynamic Plant Membrane Interfaces”. While some of the web content will be shared there, we will also post some other lab news including teaching information, student positions, group activities, etc. Just follow us or post a comment.
