PhD prizes for ZMNH scientists
10 Dec 2010
On December 10th, 2010, ZMNH scientists were awarded prizes for their excellent PhD theses:
Frank Heisler from the ZMNH Institute for Molecular Neurogenetics (Director: Prof. Dr. Matthias Kneussel) was awarded the „Gebhard Koch-Promotionspreis für Zellbiochemie und Neurobiologie 2010“ for his outstanding research on the dynamics of synaptic GABA-A receptors. Dr. Heisler identified the molecular motors and associated proteins, which actively transport neurotransmitter receptors throughout nerve cells. By the generation of knock-out mouse mutants it was shown that dynamic changes in the neuronal GABA-A receptor content regulate oscillatory network processes, known to underlie learning and memory functions in brain.
Ralf Scholz from the ZMNH Research Group Synaptic Protein Networks (Head: Dr. Hans-Christian Kornau) was awarded the “Heinrich Netheler-Promotionspreis für Molekularbiologie 2010” for his pioneering research on the endocytosis of AMPA receptors during synaptic plasticity in the brain. Dr. Scholz discovered a signaling pathway that controls the internalization of synaptic AMPA receptors from the cell surface. This pathway is critical for the weakening of synaptic transmission between nerve cells in learning and memory processes.
New ZMNH Junior Research Group
1 Dec 2010
In December 2010, the Junior Research Group Neuronal patterning and connectivity was established at the ZMNH (Group Leader: Dr. Peter Soba).
New ZMNH Junior Research Group

In May 2010, the Junior Research Group Neuronal Translational Control was established at the ZMNH (Group Leader: Dr. Kent Duncan).
ZMNH apprentice and student place second in annual computer science contest held by Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)
1 April 2010
The ZMNH software development team consisting of Laura Glau (apprentice to mathematical technical software developer, Matse) and student coworker B.Sc. Tom Kirchner (master student) from the ZMNH IT service group took part in the annual international contest Informaticup held by the GI. They presented their solution at the Informatiktage held in March 2010 at the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology. Their software solution that simulates and visualizes evolution optimizations by the genetic algorithm placed second in the competition.
