CRC 1324: Mechanisms and functions of Wnt signaling

Welcome to the website of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1324 from Heidelberg University.

Who we are

The Collaborative Research Center 1324 is a DFG-funded interdisciplinary research consortium of about 60 scientists in 15 projects and three technology platforms. Our research focuses on the mechanisms and functions of Wnt signaling.
