Researcher

Christoph Handschin studied Molecular Biology at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, followed by a PhD thesis in the laboratory of Prof. Urs A. Meyer on the transcriptional regulation of hepatic cytochromes P450 important for xenobiotic detoxification. In the subsequent postdoctoral stay in the group of Prof. Bruce M. Spiegelman at the Dana-Farber Institute/Harvard Medical School in Boston, C. Handschin investigated the regulation and function of the co-activator PGC-1alpha in skeletal muscle cells, both in exercise as well as in different pathological contexts. This work was continued and expanded by C. Handschin as an Assistant Professor at the Center for Integrative Human Physiology, University of Zurich. Currently, C. Handschin is a Full Professor of Pharmacology at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, pursuing the studies of skeletal muscle plasticity in health and disease.
