How to get there

By train

From Freiburg Hbf (Central station) take tram line 4 (to station: Hauptstraße), local train connections (direction Offenburg) to station Freiburg Herdern (only 1 station) or bus line 27 (to station: Herdern Kirche) and then by foot: 5 minutes

Approx. 1 hour bus ride from the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg or 2 to 3 hours by train or car from Frankfurt, Stuttgart or Zürich airports.

Research in the laboratory focuses on the analysis of developmental mechanisms at the molecular level. We use the zebrafish as model system to combine genetics, genomics, signaling research, experimental embryology and optogenetics to achieve a quantitative understanding of complex signaling and regulatory networks in development. One focus is on nervous system development, aiming to understand neuronal differentiation as well as specific aspects of circuit formation and function.
