The Fitzpatrick Lab is focused on understanding neural circuits in the cerebral cortex, the largest and most complex area of the brain, a neuronal network whose proper function is critical for sensory perception, motor control, and cognition. The lab uses state of the art in vivo imaging techniques to study the synaptic interactions in the visual cortex that enable our remarkable abilities to detect, interpret, and interact with the information-rich patterns of light that fall on the retina.  more
The Max Planck Research Group Systems Biology of Development studies how signaling molecules transform a ball of cells into a patterned animal embryo. The scientists use an interdisciplinary approach combining genetics, biophysics, mathematics, and computer sciences. The results may help inform new regenerative medicine approaches for the generation of tissues from stem cells. more
The combination of several separation methods with the Fritz Haber Institute free electron laser has allowed to measure infrared spectra of size selected peptide-ion aggregates in the gas phase. The spectra reveal information on the peptides’ folding states, varying between helical and β-sheet. In the future, this approach of determining folding in peptide and protein aggregates can, potentially, contribute to the better understanding of protein misfolding, aggregation and the hereby caused diseases. more
