Prof. Dr. Inga D. Neumann

focus on the brain mechanisms underlying emotional and social behaviours, and stress-related adaptations - both acute and chronic, early in life or in adulthood.

Biochemistry I

Prof. Dr. Gunter Meister

concentrate on the biochemical characterization and specific modifications of non-coding RNA in mammalian cells, how they regulate the gene expression and their impact in colorectal cancer and glioblastoma 

Biochemistry II
