SFB 1080

Dear prospective candidate for our Master scholarships.

Before you take a closer look at the website of the research centre, we would like to give you some basic information about it.  

Here is a short profile for your convenience:  
Collaborative Research Center 1080 “Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Neural Homeostasis” Speaker/Vice-Speaker: Prof. Dr. Robert Nitsch (Mainz)/ Prof. Dr. Amparo Acker-Palmer (Frankfurt) Aims: “Understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the ability of the nervous system to maintain a stable state” By unraveling these mechanisms, the CRC provides a new foundation for research into regeneration, which must take into account both, the attempt of neural tissue to regain its equilibrium in reaction to an insult as well as the failure of such stabilizing mechanisms in progressive disorders. This new understanding of the impact of homeostatic mechanisms will provide a solid basis for novel therapeutic strategies that specifically address the nervous system’s peculiar tendency towards a stable state.
