The MFN group utilizes stem cells to model different neurodegenerative diseases. Projects in the lab are at the interface of systems biology and bio-medical research.
In particular, we aim to gain new insights in the complex processes that drive neuronal demise.
To support several research projects dealing with patient-derived neuronal, astrocyte and microglia models of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, we are hiring an R&D Specialist or Research Technician.
