N7 Forging neural cell identity (Karow)

Direct lineage reprogramming as a heuristic approach to identify key players in human neurogenesis

Term: 01.07.2021 – 30.06.2023

This IZKF grant will be essential to realize my vision of using direct lineage reprogramming for the identification of novel regulators of human neurogenesis. My data provide evidence for the exciting opportunity to identify new potential molecular targets to enhance and navigate human neurogenesis for improving reprogramming and understanding developmental neurogenesis. We will study putative new neurogenesis key players during direct lineage reprogramming and early human brain development.
