Collagen receptors on cell surface

The Gullberg laboratory has characterized the integrin α11β1, which is expressed on subsets of normal fibroblasts and on carcinoma-associated fibroblasts. Major projects within the group aim to further understand the role of this collagen receptor and other fibroblast integrins during health and in disease.

The Gullberg lab is part of the Matrix biology research group at the Department of Biomedicine, and is part of the Center for Cancer Biomarkers (CCBIO) at the departments of Biomedicine and Clinical Research at the University of Bergen.
