Elisa got accepted as a CRC1218 research group leader and will open her own lab very soon: https://sfb1218.uni-koeln.de/projects/research-group-leaders/motori-lab
For further details about her research and potential open positions feel free to contact her directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
and Hae-Na defended successfully her master thesis about mitochondria trafficking in Purkinje neurons. She will stay in close proximity and start her PhD work in Elisa’s group.

Gulzar is leaving us to start a new postdoc period in the Lab of Magdalena Götz in Munich. We miss a friend and a highly regarded colleague. It won’t be same without you! We wish you all the best for your new start and scientific adventures 😉
The latest manuscript from Gulzar et al. 😉 is published on the preprint server BioRxiv: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.08.18.456709v1 Please read, comment and share the news!
Yet another online PhD Defense took place. We watched her defense via zoom and can attest: she did great! Congratulations. Esther concentrated on glia cells and observed the role of NEMO/NF-кB signaling in microglia and astrocytes reacting to brain injury. She is off now to another adventure in life 😉 We will see her back in the lab after her maternity and parental leave.
We are extremely happy to announce that our research ideas on Motor learning-induced plasticity of cerebellar Purkinje neuron connectivity got funded. News and updates on the project… Weiterlesen „We are part of the new collaborative research center ‚Key Mechanisms of Motor Control in Health and Disease‘“
Gulzar discovered important new functions of a mitochondrial protease in adult neural stem cells during his time as a PhD student. His work was supported by the Cologne Graduate School of Ageing Research. Unfortunately personal contact was still limited due to corona regulations but we tried our best to celebrate this great day! Gulzar and his expertise will stay a little longer in the lab 😉 Needless to say: We are very happy about that.
Corona cannot stop us!
Today Sandra successfully defended her PhD thesis under extraordinary circumstances. Even though we couldn’t support her during her talk, she did an amazing job.
We had dinner together to celebrate the acceptance of our paper. We revealed that mitochondria-endoplasmic reticulum contacts in reative astrocytes promote vascular remodeling: here you go 😉 Congrats especially to the first author Jana who left us for good to explore non-academic job possibilties. We miss her a lot, wish her all the best and hope for a lot of coffee visits.
