Surname, First name Research Focus
Baier, Herwig The goal of our research is to understand how neuronal circuits convert sensory inputs into behavioral responses...
Boshart, Michael The group uses protozoan Trypanosoma as a model system to study signaling mechanisms in parasitic life cycle development and in the host-parasite interaction as well as the evolution of signaling pathways in general.
Hartl, Ulrich Prof. Hartl's group investigates the mechanisms of protein folding in the cell and the consequences of protein misfolding and aggregation in neurodegenerative diseases.
Hayer-Hartl, Manajit The discovery and functional analysis of the chaperonins was instrumental in shaping our present view of de novo protein folding as a chaperone-assisted process...
Herms, Jochen The Herms' lab focuses on cellular neurobiology, clinical neuroscience, functional imaging, and developmental neurobiology...
Klein, Rüdiger Research projects for Amgen Scholars would be embedded in ongoing research on the development of the vertebrate nervous system...
Ladurner, Andreas Our team is interested in identifying, characterizing and then exploiting novel molecular mechanisms that underlie the level of regulatory plasticity in chromatin structure...
Lichtenthaler, Stefan We study how Alzheimer’s disease develops in the brain on the molecular and cellular level. The aim of our research is to better understand the disease causes and to develop new diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive approaches.
Lopez-Schier, Hernán We have recently expanded our project to investigate the mechanical and biophysical mechanisms that govern the development and regeneration of epithelial architecture...
Michalakis, Stylianos The overarching goal will be to establish and manipulate an in vitro retinal model for the evaluation of innovative therapeutic approaches for blinding eye disorders.
Misgeld, Thomas The Misgeld lab uses in vivo imaging methods (ranging from wide-field time-lapse to two-photon microscopy) to study the development and degeneration of neurons and their processes...
Niessing, Dierk Imagine a big city without a car driving and no mail being delivered. The resulting chaos is similar to what happens to a cell when its molecular transport systems are impaired...
Soll, Jürgen Prof. Soll's research group studies the metabolism and biochemistry of green plant cells...
Spletter, Maria Our work will clarify how alternative splicing works, how healthy muscles are built, what role alternative splicing plays in myogenesis, which proteins regulate alternative splicing and how the normal splicing process is disrupted in vivo in splicing diseases.
Stricker, Stefan H. The research aim of the lab is to investigate which of the myriad of epigenomic marks have significant functional relevance in mediating cell identity or disease phenotypes
Willem, Michael The Laboratory for Neurodegenerative Disease Research focuses on the generation of Amyloid ß-peptide (Aß) as the major constituent of neurotoxic amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's Disease (AD)...
