Our main research interest lies in understanding the role of various types of neurons in cortical and subcortical microcircuits.
Using state-of-art techniques such as Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2)-assisted circuit mapping, electrophysiological methods and anatomical reconstructions we aim to investigate
- the balance between excitation and inhibition, particularly in dendrites
- the cause and mechanisms of neuronal hyperexcitability in disease
Professor Christian Wozny is a visiting scientist at the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS). Christian has started at SIPBS as a Chancellor's Fellow/Lecturer in 2015 after having studied chemical engineering and medicine and after being trained as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Laboratory of Molecular Biology (MRC LMB) in Cambridge, UK, and at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany.
In 2019, Christian became a Senior Lecturer at Strathclyde, and in 2020, he accepted an offer for a Professorhip in Hamburg, Germany.
