|Molecular pathophysiology of the adrenal cortex
|We are interested in the physiological regulation of aldosterone synthesis and in its cellular pathology.
|Neurobiology of reproductive behaviour
|Maternal behaviour is the most important social behaviour of a lactating mother. How is this behaviour regulated by the brain neuropeptides vasopressin, oxytocin and corticotropin-releasing factor?
|Spontaneous Behavior and Operant Learning:
|We use invertebrate model systems to study the neurobiology of behavior: how do brains decide what to do next?

|Individual and collective decision making in ants
|Ant colonies achieve amazing feats of organisation. Individual ants are also surprisingly smart. We explore how individual behaviours affects colony decisions.
|Developing Scientific Awareness, Communications Skills and Reflective Practice
We investigate the professional development of biology teachers concerning the competence to teach students about ethical issues, scientific controversies or the cultural meaning of biology.
|Reproduction, Fertility and Development
|With a focus on the regulation of cell polarity, identity and signaling we are studying plant germline development and function, fertilization mechanisms and early seed development. more
|Neuronal mechanisms of odor processing
|We investigate processing of olfactory stimuli within the olfactory bulb, both at the level of individual synapses and in neuronal networks.
|Neurobiology & -pharmacology
|We work on elucidating the role of neurotransmitter receptors in medical conditions related to chronic stress, such as anxiety and somatic disorders
|Regulation der extrazellulären Matrix
|Chromatin, gene expression
We study how transcript elongation and co-transcriptional processes in the chromatin context modulate plant developmental responses.
|Chromatin dynamics in yeast
|Our research aims to investigate structural and compositional changes in chromatin when a eukaryotic gene switches its transcriptional state.

VHB Kurs - 3D-in-vivo-Tumor-Modell
Einsatzmöglichkeiten des 3D-in-vivo-Tumor-Modells in der Forschung sowie in der Ausbildung von Studierenden der Medizin
|We study theory, models and statistical methods in ecology, evolution and conservation.
|Using ant societies as model systems we investigate how cooperation and conflict shape behavioral ecology, genomics, and life history evolution of social animals.
|Antimicrobial defense strategies of insects
|We investigate the diverse and elaborate defense mechanisms insects deploy to fight pathogenic and competing microorganisms.
We construct synthetic microbes with new-to-nature properties to enable sustainable, bio-based production of value-added goods combining molecular biology, chemistry and data science in an interdisciplinary approach.
|Plant RNA Transport
|We study how regulatory non-coding and coding RNAs can be used as "sprayable RNAs" to improve the agricultural value of crops
|Long Noncoding RNAs in Tissue Homeostasis
|We focus on investigating the roles of long non-coding RNAs in regulation of normal and neoplastic tissue.
|Ionentransport beim Gesunden und Kranken
|Renin producing cells of the kidney
|How is the development, differentiation and function of renin producing cells in the kidney regulated and coordinated and how are the cell integrated into the blood pressure control of the body . Read more….
|Chromatin-Dynamik und Generegulation
|Our aim is to understand in molecular detail the regulation of translation which is important for the control of gene expression
|Genregulation durch microRNAs
|Inga D. Neumann
|Behavioural and Molecular Neurobiology
|We study genetic, molecular and neuronal mechanisms underlying emotional and social behavior, focusing on the neuropeptides oxytocin, vasopressin, and neuropeptide S, and by chronic stress.
|Plant Evolution and Systematics
|We study evolutionary processes that shape plant diversity. Molecular techniques, phylogenetic methods, and population genetic tools are used to investigate particularly the effects of hybridization and polyploidization in plant evolution.
|Evolutionary Innovation and Rapid Adaptation
|Evolution produces a huge diversity of forms and functions. I use ants to understand how.
|Pathophysiologie des tubulären Transports in der Niere
|Molecular Ecology and Conservation Genetics
|Genetic variation is essential for plant evolution and conservation. We analyse the mechanisms creating genetic variation and ask how much variation is needed for the longterm protection of endangered plant species
|We study ...
|Chemical communication in insects
|We study chemical cues and signals used by insects for communication and orientation within complex environments.
|Developmental Biology and Neurodegeneration
|We use the model organism Drosophila melanogaster to study gene functions related to human diseases which either affect the process of development or lead to neurodegeneration as in Parkinson’s disease.
|Ano 6 and kidney function
|Calcium-activated chloride channels (Ano 1-10) play important roles in transepithelial transport, but the cellular function is still unsolved.
|Regulation of the Cell Division Cycle
|We study how cells proceed through mitosis and how cell cycle entry is influenced by mRNA translation using budding yeast as a model.
|Cell Cycle Control in Drosophila
|How is cell proliferation controlled and coordinated in a multicellular organism? Ask the fruit Drosophila more
|Flowering plant gamete interactions and polar tip growth
|We isolate flowering plant gametes to identify the molecular mechanisms of gamete interactions. Tip growth is studied in pollen tubes and root hairs.
|Enzyme evolution and protein design
|We are reconstructing the evolution of enzymes in the laboratory and are designing tailor-made proteins more
|Evolutionary and chemical ecology of insects
|We study behavioural, physiological and chemical adaptations of insects focussing on interactions of bees and wasps with brood parasites and symbionts.
|Homöostase des menschlichen Auges
|Our interest is to understand mechanism and regulation of the RNA polymerase I transcription machinery.
