Molecular Biology

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...
Dames, Sonja A. The goal of our research is to elucidate the atomic details of the biomolecular signaling network that controls cellular reactions in living organisms...
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...
Hartl, Ulrich Protein folding is required for the realization of genetic information at the level of functional proteins and is, as such, one of the most fundamental reactions in all of biology...
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...
Imhof, Axel The group of Prof. Axel Imhof is interested in the protein composition of defined chromosomal loci and their dynamics during cellular differentiation and disease...
Korber, Philipp The Korber group studies the mechanisms of nucleosome positioning and remodeling...
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...
Soll, J├╝rgen Prof. Soll's research group studies the metabolism and biochemistry of green plant cells...
Trauner, Dirk The Trauner group is interested in chemical synthesis, natural product chemistry, neuroscience, cell biology, and photopharmacology.
