Research aims & groups

The research aims of DANDRITE are:

  • Establish the molecular basis of intra- and intercellular transport/signaling pathways that govern brain circuitries, with focus on molecular structure-function relationships, and on cellular, animal, and patient models of membrane-associated processes
  • Establish and understand the molecular and cellular networks that form a hierarchical basis of complex patterns and control of signal processing in brain
  • Identify and understand the molecular basis of altered processes in neurological and psychiatric disease (e.g. dementia and depression), trauma, and stress
  • Identify and validate novel targets for translational research in health and disease of the nervous system/brain
  • Identify and validate novel therapies and practices leading to molecular intervention in disease
