Andreas Ladurner    Welcome to our Department!

The research groups in our department investigate the nuclear processes that allow organisms to react and adapt to a variety of environmental changes. We are interested in the identification and analysis of novel mechanisms that dynamically regulate chromatin structure and transcription, with a keen focus on the role of cellular metabolites, DNA damage, signalling networks and mitochondrial function.
We study how aging, DNA damage, and animal behaviour condition gene activity and nuclear function.
