Die Entwicklungsbiologin Anna Kicheva erforscht dynamische Vorgänge in Zellen: Sie studiert Faktoren, die einer Nervenzelle sagen, wofür sie im Körper zuständig ist.



The lab was awarded an ERC Starting Grant to work on “Coordination of Patterning and Growth in the Spinal Cord” with a starting date July 1, 2016.
