Welcome to the Soba lab DFG Heisenberg Group for Neuronal Patterning and Connectivity Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology University of Erlangen-Nuremberg currently hosted at: LIMES-Institute, University of Bonn
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.
Our new paper on optogenetically modified dopamine receptors is online at Nature Communications. Check out the tools if you are interested in manipulating dopamine receptor-specific functions in flies in vivo!
Welcome Shreyas! Shreyas Sakharwade recently joned our lab as a PhD student to work on genes related to neurodevelopmental disorders.
Many thanks to the ZMNH and UKE for hosting us, it was a real pleasure! We have relocated to the LIMES-Institute in Bonn, where we are excited about the next chapter. Peter also got appointed at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
Nusreen's cool paper on peptidergic circuit control of escape responses just came out in Current Biology.
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.
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!
