Postdoctoral Fellow

Jörg Otte, PhD


Jörg obtained his PhD in the field of cancer and stem cell biology in 2019 at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany. Using the ex vivo primary colon cancer organoid model, he analyzed the heterogeneity of colon cancer stem cells and the influence of paracrine signaling factors on their self-renewal.

Since April 2019, Jörg works as a postdoc in the Baryawno lab focusing on single cell RNA sequencing analysis of neuroblastoma tissue and other cancers. The aim is to investigate the cellular and molecular landscape of tumor cells at the single cell level and mechanisms of communication between cells within the tumor microenvironment in order to search for resistance mechanisms and novel therapy options.

Dr Jörg Otte is funded by The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation.
