Jan 2019: Mareike Albert selected as Emmy Noether Group Leader

Mareike Albert has been selected as a fellow of the Emmy Noether Programme of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation). She started her new group “Gene regulatory mechanisms of neocortex evolution” in January 2019 at the Center for Regenerative Therapies (CRTD) at TU Dresden. The group wants to develop in vivo epigenome editing tools to study which role epigenetic mechanisms play in neocortex development. The group also wants to find gene regulatory regions that have contributed to human brain evolution and investigate the role of non-coding genetic variants in neurodevelopmental diseases.
