Internship or Master thesis position

6-8 months long internship and/or master thesis project at DZNE (Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrangungen, Feodor-Lynen-Str. 17, 81377 Munich) in the group of Prof. Dr. Dieter Edbauer in the field of ALS research

11.01.2023 – 11.02.2023

Are you a master student interested in neurodegenerative diseases looking for a research internship with the opportunity to couple it with a master thesis project? Would you like to take part in cutting-edge research, learning new techniques involving in vivo experiments?

Our laboratory focuses on the pathomechanisms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurological disorder for which there is no known cure. We are investigating its pathogenesis with the help of different mouse models for ALS. We aim to gain a better understanding of the disease pathology through studying the different
molecular and cellular mechanisms that lead to neurodegeneration in the ALS-brain, e.g. the aggregation of TDP-43 and other proteins, and seek to develop effective therapeutic options.
