Gudrun Stenbeck studied chemical engineering at undergraduate level and received her PhD from the Technical University Darmstadt, Germany, in 1993 after PhD work on vesicular trafficking in the laboratory of Prof Felix Wieland. She undertook postdoctoral work with Prof James E. Rothman at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York before joining the laboratory of Prof Mike Horton at University College London to study the molecular mechanisms of osteoclastic bone resorption. After receiving an Arthritis Research UK fellowship in 2000 to establish her independent research, she is now a lecturer in Biomedical Sciences at Brunel University London.
Her research focuses on the cell biology of bone homeostasis and extracellular matrix deposition. Her current research is aimed at characterising the signalling events relaying extracellular stimuli to components of the intracellular trafficking machinery to develop new strategies for the treatment of osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and fibrotic diseases.
Gudrun has been a member of BRS/BATS since 1997 and is excited to now have the opportunity to support the society as committee member.
