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 habilitation. Today, our department is embedded in the Würzburg Biocentre and continues to provide an inspiring research environment, especially for junior scientists.
