Transgenics

Transgenics

New methods in functional genomics provide insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying brain functions and diseases of the central nervous system. The Transgenics platform implements genotype- and phenotype-based genomic studies in animal models for identifying disease mechanisms and evaluationg new diagnostic and therapeutic methods.

The results of this research will contribute towards identifying new drug targets and generating new animal models for compound screening. The research topics of the Transgenics platform build on key expertise of the Institute of Molecular Psychiatry on modeling stress-induced psychiatric diseases, drug dependence and pain perception in transgenic mice.
