Live cell imaging-based modelling of cellular toxicity pathways

The aim of my research is to set up and develop an in vitro high throughput screening using BAC reporter liver carcinoma cell lines. Drug Induced Liver Injury (DILI) is a major problem in society due to newly designed drugs. Using this screen, early problems in terms of cellular stress responses can be detected. Furthermore, siRNA screening will be performed to check biological relevant genes in these stress responses.
