    Chair of Cell and Developmental Biology (Zoology I)

     

     

    For more than a century, Cell and Developmental Biology has been one major research focus at the Zoological Institute of the Julius-Maximilians-University in Würzburg. Here, Theodor Boveri founded the chromosome theory of inheritance and Hans Spemann did his famous habilitation.

    Today, we provide an inspiring scientific environment for several committed (and young) research groups. We work on basic aspects of membrane biology, as well as on the physics of cells, mammalian meiosis, developmental epigenetics and RNA biology. Importantly, we promote parasites, especially the deadly African trypanosomes, as powerful model system, without ignoring the huge impact that neglected tropical diseases have, especially in Africa.
