Kizil lab joining the Venusberg meeting with a talk

This year, German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) is organizing the 6th Venusberg Meeting on Neuroinflammation. Top-notch speakers from all areas of neuroinflammation will present the most recent findings and developments in order to stimulate vivid and challenging discussions. Kizil Lab will join this meeting and we are glad that Prabesh Bhattarai will give a …

We gave an interview to MDR news

We gave an interview to MDR news in Germany on our latest zebrafish work: single cell analyses of zebrafish brain's response to Alzheimer's disease. (Click the image to listen)

We determined the response of all brain cells to Alzheimer’s in single cell resolution

How fish brain cells react to Alzheimer’s disease Zebrafish, in contrast to humans, have outstanding regenerative capacities: If brain cells are lost due to illness or injury, they will easily regrow from so-called progenitor cells. With sophisticated methods, in the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), we now characterized …

Our Alzheimer’s disease model in zebrafish is used for validating a drug that prevents loss of neuronal connections

A collaborative work led by Jared Sterneckert, and in which Kizil Lab was also involved, is now published in the journal Stem Cell Reports, the official journal of International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR). This study identified a lead compound that inhibits CDK5 and GSK3β, and is neuroprotective in vitro and in vivo. Prabesh …
