Surname, First name Research Focus Availability
Bölter, Bettina Characterisation of protein transport into chloroplasts - analysis of composition and regulation of translocation complexes. available in 2022
Cordes, Thorben The Cordes lab “Physical and Synthetic Biology” specializes in the development and application of novel spectroscopy and imaging techniques that allow to map structure and function of biomolecules and (bio)chemical processes in space and time. available in 2022
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. available in 2022
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. not available
Kunz, Hans-Henning The research in our group is strongly focused on the plant chloroplasts and transport processes in this organelle. We are particularly interested in ion transport proteins. Currently, we are working on the identification of their substrates and molecular mechanisms. available in 2022
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. available in 2022
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. TBA
Nägele, Thomas To promote our understanding of how plants acclimate to a changing environment, our research focuses on the quantitative analysis of metabolic regulation. available in 2022
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. TBA
Spletter, Maria In our research we strive to understand the normal function and regulation of RNA processing, in particular alternative splicing, in myogenesis and how dysregulation contributes to muscle disease. available in 2022
Thorn-Seshold, Oliver Our group uses organic chemistry to create small molecule reagents for cell biology research, and targeted therapeutics for translational medicine. TBD
Turck, Christoph W. The comparison of the proteome of diseased and healthy tissues and body fluids and the subsequent identification of the proteins that are different from normal in disease are pursued in order to unravel the pathogenesis of disease, to identify therapeutic targets, and to develop diagnostic tests. not available
Wagner, Ernst Novel molecular therapeutics like siRNA, microRNAs or antagomiRs require potent extracellular and intracellular delivery devices to be effective antitumor agents. TBA
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). TBA
