Scientific Focus

  • The Institute of Developmental Genetics (IDG) develops tools and methods for large scale gene function annotation in mouse which provides preclinical resources to determine the underlying molecular causes of human diseases. With a focus on Parkinson´s disease, dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis preclinical mouse und cellular human models are used to identify the molecular disease signatures to determine the interplay of genetic predispositions, environmental and life style factors in combination with aging. Based on these findings novel preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches are developed to combat these devastating diseases.
