In situ molecular structures of the brain

Welcome to the Rene Frank group

We are a multidisciplinary group using mouse genetics, pharmacology, cryogenic correlated light-electron microscopy (cryoCLEM) and cryo-electron tomgraphy. We combine these approaches to determine in situ molecular structures of the brain.

The Frank is investigating fundamental molecular mechanisms within the mammalian brain with a particuar interest in the structural basis of synaptic mechanisms, memory, and Alzheimer's disease.
