Facilities & Infrastructure

The Division of Translational Neuroscience has state-of-the-art laboratories for electrophysiology, microscopy, molecular biology, as well as biochemistry laboratories for tissue processing, cell culturing, immunohistochemistry, proteomics and genomics.

For example, there is access to a light sheet microscope, confocal microscopes and various stereological microscopy set-ups of the highest standard. There are excellent molecular biology labs for in vitro and in vivo non-viral as well as viral gene transfer experiments including optogenetics and CRISP/Cas9. The behavioral animal labs meet the latest up-to-date standards for automated assessment of animal behavior. There is a large expertise in a wide variety of animal models and tests for diseases of the central, autonomic and peripheral nervous systems, muscle diseases and diseases of the sensory systems.
