Priv.Doz.Dr.med. Hans-Åke Fabricius      IMG 8777 pass

 

CVO of Cell Receptor, discoverer of the new mechanism regulating cell growth,  product developer and scientific advisor to Cell Receptor, was born in Finland in 1945. He studied medicine in Tübingen and there he made his state examination as a physician and his doctorate at the Max Planck Institut für Virusforschung there where he worked in the field of tumor biology. In 1973 he worked as an IARC scholarship holder at the Wallenberg Laboratory in Uppsala. 1981 he completed his training for specialist in Laboratory Medicine in Freiburg, where he 1982 received his Venia Legendi for Laboratory Medicine and Clinical Chemistry with his discovery of a T-cell Growth factor that later was named Interleukin II.

He has with his group received 12 cell-biological patents and is the author / co-author of more than 50 scientific papers and contributions.

In 1991 he joined the Krankenhaus Am Urban in Berlin as chief physician of the central laboratory. From 1996 to 1999 he was Medical Director of the Urban Krankenhaus, and from 2001 he built the central laboratory Institute for the Vivantes Netzwerk für Gesundheit. At the beginning of this activity, the hospital laboratories in the municipal clinics in Berlin employed 321 persons. After the restructuring, 172 persons were sufficient to handle the task. The institute has since grown to be the largest hospital-based medical laboratory in Germany.

He went 2008 into retirement and was from 1996 to 2017 active as an expert witness and forensic genetics consultant for kinship testing in Berlin. Since 2010, he is active again in the experimental biology of tumor cells, and is particularly concerned with regulatory mechanisms of cell growth.

He is particularly interested in the mechanisms of transfer of growth signals from the site of their synthesis to growth committed tumor cells. His new discoveries, are now in the possession of Cell Receptor and will make a significant contribution to combating metastatic seeding.

Béatrice Fabricius is our founder and CEO. She was born in Bern, Switzerland, in 1955, moved to Germany in 1965 and spent time abroad in Chicago during her high school years in Wolfsburg. She studied graphic and textile design in Hanover and then pursued an independent career, establishing design galleries in Braunschweig, Hamburg and later in Berlin, where she also owned and operated a small five-star hotel, Villa Ammonit, that belonged to the group of Great Small Hotels. In 2014, she founded a private laboratory for forensic genetics there, which also housed the Cell Receptor research laboratory managed by her husband. In 2017, she restructured Cell Receptor into the current public company, which now holds 4 medical process patents resulting from his research, and is determined to introduce the use of these into clinical oncology.

* SULFATED POLYSACCHARIDES FOR USE IN THE TREATMENT OF CANCER
Patent number: EP 3 060 223 B1

Date of publication 30.08.2017
Inventor: Hans-Åke Fabricius
Description: The invention relates to a method for modulating the growth and/or proliferation of mammalian cells by modulating the physical interaction between platelets (thrombocytes) and the surface of the cells. The invention therefore relates to sulfated polysaccharides, preferably glycosaminoglycans, for use as a medicament for the inhibition of the physical interaction between the cell surface and platelets in the treatment of a medical disorder associated with unwanted cell growth and/or proliferation. In vitro methods for modulating the physical interaction between platelets (thrombocytes) and the surface of the cells in order to modulate cell proliferation are also encompassed by the invention. The invention therefore relates to the inhibition of the interaction between the cell surface and platelets for the inhibition of cell growth, and an enhancement of the interaction between platelets and the surface of the cell in order to enhance cell growth.
