Sergio Pérez Acebrón


I am a scientist at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). My current research focuses on WNT signalling, which is a cell-to-cell communication system that controls critical steps in development and tissue renewal. Misregulation of WNT signalling can lead to disease, most notably cancer. My research articles can be found here.

Besides my responsibilities at DKFZ, I am the president of the Society of Spanish Scientists in Germany (CERFA). I am also committed to public communication of science: My columns and posts can be found at MappingIgnorance[EN], Naukas [ES], El Heraldo de Aragón, and El Correo.

I am passionate about running, playing squash, hiking and cooking.
