The Senior Group Biosynthesis of Neural Structures

was established by Prof. Dr. Melitta Schachner Camartin in 2011 to continue the research work of the ZMNH Institute for Biosynthesis of Neural Structures that was established under her direction in 1995 at the Center for Molecular Neurobiology Hamburg (ZMNH) .

The group's research focus is the role of recognition molecules at the cell surface and in the extracellular matrix for the nervous system during ontogenesis, synaptic plasticity as well as regeneration of the adult peripheral and central nervous systems after acute or chronic injuries.
