Brain and cell as a plastic model

The preparator Sebastian Pilz guided the participants of the first execution through the anatomical collection.

During this Science Trail, the anatomy postdocs provide insights into their research: they offer a look through their multiphoton microscope, which enables fascinating images of the moving cell interior in living tissue. Science Trail participants learn how genetically engineered organisms help understand the mechanisms of the diseased body and ultimately help heal people, and they learn how experiments are conducted in zero gravity to understand to what extent and why gravity is necessary for human cells to function.


Many thanks to the researchers: Eilidh Craigie Denham, Jan Czogalla, David Pentón Ribas, Sebastian Pilz, Claus-Dieter Schuh, Svantje Tauber.
