Genetics

Surname, First name Research Focus
Baier, Herwig The goal of our research is to understand how neuronal circuits convert sensory inputs into behavioral responses...
Becker, Peter B. Research in Prof. Becker's lab focuses on the molecular mechanisms, by which dedicated modulators of chromatin structure regulate the activity of chromosomal loci...
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.
Gompel, Nicolas A stricking feature of animal evolution is the diversity of their forms and behaviors. The evolution of traits entails changes in the genetic make-up of each species...
Grunwald Kadow, Ilona Our goal is to understand the neural circuits and neuronal mechanisms underpinning decision-making and adaptive behavior. To this end, we combine state-of-the-art fly genetics, with in vivo functional imaging, optogenetics and custom-made behavioral assays.
Korber, Philipp The Korber group studies the mechanisms of nucleosome positioning and remodeling...
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...
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.
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...
Sattler, Michael We study the structure, molecular recognition and dynamics of biomolecules in solution using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, combined with complementary structural biology and biophysical techniques...
Schmidt, Mathias V. Stress-associated diseases, with depression leading the way, affect the quality of life of more than a billion people world-wide...
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 overarching goal will be to establish and manipulate an in vitro retinal model for the evaluation of innovative therapeutic approaches for blinding eye disorders.
Touma, Chadi Our focus is to generate and characterise clinically relevant animal models of inborn (trait) emotionality and stress reactivity in order to elucidate neurobiological, endocrine and molecular-genetic mechanisms underlying affective disorders such as major depression...
Wagner, Ernst Novel molecular therapeutics like siRNA, microRNAs or antagomiRs require potent extracellular and intracellular delivery devices to be effective antitumor agents...
