and transcriptional programs. Candidates with a profound expertise in animal models
of neurodegenerative diseases, vascular biology and stem cell biology will be given
Both departments at the institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology will jointly perform the
teaching in anatomy required for human medicine, dentistry, and molecular medicine.
