The focus of Prof Müller's workgroup is on the establishment and further development of complex 3D in vitro models for the healing of wounds, tumour-stroma interaction and metastasis as a substitute for animal testing in the medical research and development of therapeutics. In earlier work the workgroup was able to make a considerable contribution to tumour progression and metastasis using complex cytokine-interaction-activated tumour stromas. The decoding of a complex tumour-challenging cytokine network made clear that both activated fibroblasts and inflammatory cells of the tumour stroma, promote tumour progression, angiogenesis and metastasis.
