Martin Lux
PhD

martin.lux (at) usb.ch




Martin Lux studied in Heidelberg, Mainz and Freiburg - most recently investigating the influence of cancer-associated fibroblasts on esophageal cancer cell progression. Thereby he made use of 2D and 3D co-culture models, respectively tissue engineering techniques to observe tumor-stroma interactions in a tissue-like environment. Outside academia he was entrusted to assemble and characterize lipid-based nanoparticles for the targeted delivery of mRNA in cancer immunotherapy/vaccination at BioNTech SE.
