Specific Qualification in TraceAge

The TraceAge Co-Speaker Anna Kipp is working since 2005 on the physiological role of the essential trace element Se and of selenoproteins, for which she became a well-recognized expert in the field. In 2012, she was granted with the International Schrauzer prize for selenium research. Recently, she was part of the German committee of selenium experts recalculating and reassessing the reference value for the selenium intake (coordinated by the German Society of Nutrition). Besides this, she has extensive experience in conducting mouse feeding studies (including subclinical Se deficiency) and using murine colitis and cancer models together with transgenic mouse models. During the last years her research focus was mainly on intestinal physiology and redox-regulated processes which both were studied using state-of-the-art molecular biology and biochemical methods and cell culture. In line with this, her preliminary work deals with effects of a suboptimal Se status on pathway activities and redox-modulated processes in mice. Up to now, a specific focus has been given to Nrf2, NF-kB, and Wnt signaling in the intestinal epithelium, the liver, and inflammatory cells.
