New publication from Team leader Hanne Poulsen - The α4 isoform of the Na+ ,K+ -ATPase is tuned for changing extracellular environments

A unique pump in sperm cells makes a difficult journey possible. A prerequisite for the sperm cell's difficult journey from the testes to the fallopian tube is its unique sodium-potassium pump. New studies of the unique pump show how it differs from the sodium-potassium pumps in the rest of the body, and gives hints on why sperm cells have…

New master student at DANDRITE

Nicolai Glud started as a master student in Duda Kvitsiani's group per 29 October 2015. The scope of his project is to develop statistical models for movement behaviour in the common fruit fly. Experimental data is gathered from a setup where the flies are confined to "arenas" where they are "rewarded" with a short light pulse whenever they reach…

New publication from Mark Denham's group - Enteric Neural Cells from Hirschsprung Disease Patients form Ganglia in Autologous Aneuronal Colon Muscle Tissue

In collaboration with the Newgreen laboratory at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Australia. Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) is caused by failure of neural crest (NC) derived cells to colonize the distal bowel in early embryogenesis, resulting in absence of the enteric nervous system (ENS) and failure of intestinal transit postnatally.…

New postdoc at DANDRITE

Szilard started as postdoc in Keisuke Yonehara's group per October 5 2015. He will study how individual retinal cell types diverging onto multiple brain regions contribute to visual signal processing and behavior. To achieve this goal he will generate new transgenic mouse lines in which single retinal ganglion cell types are labeled by molecular…

New research assistant at DANDRITE

Sophie Seidenbecher started as research assistant per 15. October 2015 in Duda Kvitsiani's group. Sophie’s research focus will be on understanding the molecular basis of foraging decisions in the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster). Using a recently developed single fly reward foraging assay, she will build computational models of food foraging…
