Melissa Vos meeting Nobel Laureate Yoshinori Ohsumi at the Lindau Laureate Meeting.

Once every year, about 30 Nobel Laureates convene in Lindau, Germany, to meet the next generation of leading scientists.

Around 600 students and post-docs from all over the world gather together for a week and get the chance to meet and discuss with the Laureates during lunches, walks and talks.

Here, Melissa Vos is having lunch with Prof. Yoshinori Ohsumi who won the price for medicine in 2016 for his discovery of the autophagy process.

Kobi Wasner has joined the Institute of Neurogenetics as a visiting scientist.

Kobi Wasner from the University of Luxembourg has joined the Institute of Neurogenetics for a three-month internship, starting from April 2018.

Kobi completed his Bachelor’s degree at Queens College in New York City in Neuroscience and Psychology. He then went on to complete a Master’s degree at the University of Connecticut Health Center, where he learned to work with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).

We are enthusiastic to have him as an intern and welcome him at our institute.

Christine Klein was awarded a new research grant from The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) for the project entitled Identifying global cohorts with monogenic Parkinson’s disease.

Christine Klein awarded the Movement Disorder Society’s Distinguished Service Award in Vancouver, Canada on June 4th, 2017

Philip Seibler appointed W2 Professor for Applied Stem Cell Research

Dr. Joanne Trinh has joined the Institute of Neurogenetics as a postdoctoral research fellow.

headshot14.02.2017 – Dr. Joanne Trinh has joined the Institute of Neurogenetics as a postdoctoral research fellow. She completed her PhD studies in genetic modifiers of disease onset in LRRK2 parkinsonism at the University of British Columbia with Prof. Dr. Matthew Farrer (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27692902). Her passion for identifying factors that influence onset age of Parkinson disease has led her to join the ‘Reduced Penetrance in Hereditary Movement Disorders – ProtectMove’ DFG Research Unit. She aspires to strengthen the research unit with her expertise in genetics and genomics of penetrance modifiers. We are enthusiastic to have her on the team!
