The Methnerlab is part of the Department of Neurology at Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf and is located at the Life Science Center in Düsseldorf-Bilk.
The research goal of the Methner lab is neuronal cell death and how to prevent it.
We study mechanisms of resistance against oxidative stress, the role of the calcium machinery in cell death and protection, and transcriptional effectors of cell survival in models of neurological disease.
We employ a combination of molecular and cell biological, biochemical, and genetic approaches and use neurons and neuronal stem cells in primary culture.
