Interested in our work?
We are always looking for highly motivated students at all career levels (Bachelor/Master/PhD/Postdoc).
If you are interested, please inquire to discuss the current possibilities in our lab.
Nusreen's cool paper on peptidergic circuit control of escape responses just came out in Current Biology. Get it here for free!
Find Chun's small but neat follow-up study on how microtubule dynamics and Tao kinase might regulate dendrite branching here.
At last! Chun's nice paper on Tao kinase in sensory neuron development and function is online at Journal of Neuroscience.
Federico's paper on regulation of synaptic growth and connectivity by Tao kinase is online at Nature Communications. Check it out, it is a really cool story! And Federico successfully defended his Ph.D. in 2019. Congratulations!
Nina's paper on substrate-driven space-filling growth of dendrites is online at Cell Reports and made the cover! Congratulations and thanks to all contributors!
Our detailed protocols for mechano- and thermonociception in Drosophila larvae are out and freely available at Bio-Protocol.
Check out our Nature Neuroscience paper on modality-specific encoding of nociceptive behavior in Drosophila. Congrats to Chun, Meike, Nina, Bettina, Denan and Federico for the fantastic lab-wide effort and work! And thanks to the UKE for making it the paper of the month August 2017!
