We organized a mini-symposium for the visit of Prof. Dr. Thomas Südhof, Nobel laureate in Physiology or Medicine, 2013. It was an excellent discussion round. Thanks to all speakers and TU Dresden for the support.
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 …
