Research Overview - Molecular Neurodynamics

Under construction - To be updated  <:0>><     :-)

We study molecular dynamics in the brain and mechanisms of mRNA translation control.

Our interests include:

  1. To elucidate molecular mechanisms of memory formation.
  2. To define molecular pathways of brain development in health and disease.
  3. To better understand the mechanisms leading to neurodegeneration, focusing on genomic-instability-related disorders.
  4. To reveal molecular networks affecting aging.

Our model systems include cell cultures and zebrafish which are well suited for our aims.

We use state of the art microscopy, cell-type-specific proteomics and sequencing combined with computational analysis.
