New review article by Michael Potente and Peter Carmeliet

18.12.2016 by Michael Potente

In the forthcoming issue of Annual Review of Physiology, a review article by Michael Potente and Peter Carmeliet will be published. The article has the title “The link between angiogenesis and endothelial metabolism” and discusses the role of endothelial metabolism for vessel growth and function. In this review, Michael and Peter take a cell biological perspective to explain the metabolic requirements of sprouting vessels, and to highlight the cellular consequences of altering specific metabolic pathways in endothelial cells. They also explain how endothelial cells sense changes in their metabolic microenvironment, and how changes in EC metabolism can contribute to disease.

The article is already available online on the website of Annual Reviews.

Congratulations to Radiance Lim for obtaining her Ph.D. degree

03.12.2016 by Michael Potente

On November 28th, Radiance Lim from Singapore successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis at the University of Cologne. In her studies, she investigated the role of deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) in the regulation of endothelial Notch signaling.

Michael Potente receives Galenus-von-Pergamon Award

03.12.2016 by Michael Potente

On October 20, 2016, Priv.-Doz. Dr. Michael Potente received the 2016 Galenus-von-Pergamon Award for his advancement of pharmacological research. The award in the category “basic research” honored his groundbreaking work on the regulation of blood vessel growth in physiology and disease states.

 

The Galenus von Pergamon Prize is awarded every year to promote pharmacological research. It is divided into a prize for basic research and three prizes for drug innovations. The award for basic research is given for outstanding scientific achievements outside of the pharmaceutical industry.

Michael Potente becomes BIH Visiting Professor

03.12.2016 by Michael Potente

Michael Potente is one three new guest scientists that foster research at Max Delbrueck Center (MDC) and Berlin Institute of Health (BIH). The Charité Foundation and the Einstein Foundation of Berlin are supporting the three professors who will come to Berlin to collaborate with groups at the MDC under the framework of the BIH. This initiative is part of the BIH strategy to bring findings from basic research into the clinic more quickly. During his Visiting Professorship, Michael Potente will work with Holger Gerhardt and his team at the MDC. The aim is to launch joint longstanding research program. He is being sponsored by the new BIH Visiting Professors program.

 

The Einstein Visiting Fellows Program exists since 2014 and is supported by the Private Excellence Initiative funded by Johanna Quandt. The Charité Foundation awards the Einstein BIH Visiting Fellowships in collaboration with the Einstein Foundation Berlin.

Kerstin Wilhelm wins the second prize of the 2016 Hermann Rein Award

29.09.2016 by Michael Potente

Dr. Kerstin Wilhelm was chosen as one of the three finalists for the Hermann Rein Award for her recent publication „FOXO1 couples metabolic activity and growth state in the vascular endothelium“. This award stands for outstanding achievements in the field of experimental or clinical research in microcirculation and vascular biology and is funded by Servier Deutschland GmbH. This year the award committee of 6 professors from Germany and Switzerland received 13 applications. All applicants published in prestigious and high impact factor journals (average >18), reflecting the excellent quality of all submissions. During the meeting of the German Society for Microcirculation and Vascular Biology (GfMVB) from 26th to 28th of September, 2016 the three chosen finalists had to present their work. Afterward, the jury anonymously reviewed and ranked the three finalists. We congratulate Kerstin for her excellent present in the award session and for winning the second prize.

Kerstin Wilhelm graduates with highest honor

15.09.2016 by Michael Potente

On September 14th, Kerstin Wilhelm successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis at the Goethe University in Frankfurt. In her studies, she investigated the role of FOXO transcription factors in the regulation of endothelial metabolism and angiogenesis – work which was published in Nature earlier this year. Kerstin received her doctorate with the highest distinction (summa cum laude), and the whole lab congratulates to this fantastic achievement.
