Höchste wissenschaftliche Auszeichnung Taiwans für Hannah Monyer

MonyerDer taiwanesische Wissenschaftsrat zeichnete Hannah Monyer vom Deutschen Krebsforschungszentrum und vom Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg für ihre bahnbrechenden Arbeiten zum Gedächtnis mit dem Tsungming Tu-Preis aus. Der Preis ist die höchste akademische Ehre Taiwans für ausländische Wissenschaftler und ist mit 75.000 Dollar dotiert. 

Eine besondere Rolle für das Lernen und das Gedächtnis spielen die so genannten inhibitorischen Interneurone, die den Neurotransmitter GABA produzieren. Monyer konnte zeigen, wie diese Interneurone mit anderen Nervenzellen verschaltet sind und diese im Millisekundenbereich synchronisieren. Die synchrone Aktivität von Nervenschaltkreisen liegt den kognitiven Funktionen zugrunde.

Derzeit konzentriert sich die Neurowissenschaftlerin auf die Plastizität des Gehirns, also seine Anpassungsfähigkeit, die auf der Integration neu geborener Nervenzellen in bestehende Netzwerke beruht. Dazu untersucht sie Gene, die an Zellgeburt, Zellwanderung und Zelldifferenzierung beteiligt sind. [Mehr...]

IZN/Chica and Heinz Schaller Young Investigator Neuroscience Award

Call for Nominations for the 2017 Award

The IZN/Chica and Heinz Schaller Young Investigator Neuroscience Award is an annual prize offered by the Chica and Heinz Schaller Foundation and is given in recognition of an outstanding first-author research publication in any aspect of neuroscience. Candidates must be current members of IZN research groups or have been members while the relevant work was performed. IZN group leaders are excluded unless the work was clearly done during their post-doctoral or PhD period at IZN. Self-nomination of candidates is encouraged.

Deadline for nominations is May 30, 2017 and the award winner will be notified at the end of June 2017. The prize money of 1,000 € is to be used at the winner’s or winners’ discretion and may be divided between equally contributing first authors. The prize will be presented at an award ceremony during the annual IZN Retreat, July 09-10, 2017, at Kloster Schöntal, where the successful candidate will make a 10-minute presentation of his/her work.

Applications should include:

  • A CV
  • Scientific justification (one page, single spaced, Arial 11)
  • Summary of the significance of the work in lay terms (half a page, single spaced, Arial 11)
  • Original paper published or accepted for publication in 2016 or before May 31, 2017

Open positions at the IZN

  • A postdoctoral position in Neurobiology and Alzheimer Research is available in the laboratory of Prof. Ulrike Müller Externer Inhalt (IPMB, Department of Functional Genomics) studying the synaptic role of the APP gene family and their processing products in transgenic animal models.  Adobe  posted 02.2017
  • Two PhD positions are offered in Developmental Neurobiology (Prof G.E. Pollerberg Externer Inhalt) to focus on new cell adhesion molecule (CAM)-interaction partners which we identified and analyze the functional impact of these interactions on axon growth. The projects are basic research but also aim at contributing to the development of novel therapeutic approaches.  Adobe  posted 02.2017
