Surname, First name Research Focus Availability
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
Herms, Jochen Physiological function of proteins involved in Neurodegenerative diseases, synaptic failure in Neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease (AD,PD), long-term in vivo two-photon imaging of transgenic mice models of AD, neuronal calcium homeostasis in neurodegenerative diseases, high-throughput drug screens for AD and PD. not available
Imhof, Axel We study the proteomic composition of distinct chromatin domains, the mechanisms that operate to maintain the composition of histone modifications and the associated proteins at a given DNA locus. 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
Niessing, Dierk Our goal is to understand the molecular principles underlying cargo recognition by transport complexes, complex assembly and activation, and eventually complex disassembly after the transport. TBA
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
Schmidt, Mathias V. The main focus of this research group is to study the impact of acute and chronic stress on the body during different developmental stages. Specifically, we are interested in the behavioral, neuroendocrine and molecular basis of individual stress vulnerability and resilience. available in 2022
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
