Department of Neurobiology

The research programs of the Department aim at understanding the function and dysfunction of the nervous and neuromuscular systems towards development of new treatments for currently incurable neurological diseases or neurotrauma, and the identification of novel biomarkers.

Studies range from molecules and structure-function relationships of neuronal receptors to cells, including stem cells and reprogramming technologies, and extend to animal models of autoimmunity, neuropathology and neuroregeneration.

Advanced light microscopy and whole animal imaging, crystallization of neuronal receptors, ligand binding studies and electrophysiology, gene and cell therapy approaches or immunotherapy constitute essential components of our research.
