The Multidimensional Brain

Leaders : Sylvie Rétaux, Muriel Perron

The DevEvo Department, at the forefront of basic research, is exploring the molecular, genetic and epigenetic information governing the development, evolution, maintenance and regeneration of the nervous system. DevEvo research groups place particular emphasis on the study of (i) neural stem cells under both homeostatic and pathological conditions and (ii) the evolution of brain morphogenesis and neural patterning.

Tribute to Karlheinz Meier

Karlheinz was a dear friend, a unique person, a Man of Science that we will always remember, a man of integrity whom we will honor, a man of vision for his physicist and biologist colleagues.
This letter was written on behalf of his friends at UNIC, and all the interdisciplinary PIs and students who participated in this incredible scientific journey under his guidance.
Yves Frégnac Director of UNIC and Biology coordinator of FACETS and BrainScaleS.
