Dieter Edbauer, M.D.Professor, Cell Biology of Neurodegeneration at DZNE
Dieter Edbauer is a Professor for Translational Neurobiochemistry at LMU and DZNE in Munich, Germany. In 2013 his team discovered the non-canonical translation of the C9orf72 repeat expansion in ALS and FTD. His lab analyzes the role of DPR proteins in ALS/FTD pathogenesis using in cellular and animal models as wells as patient material to develop therapeutic approaches. Before starting his lab at DZNE/LMU, he studied medicine (LMU) and worked on the biochemistry of Alzheimer's disease (with Christian Haass at LMU) and the role of microRNA in Fragile X syndrome (with Morgan Sheng at MIT).
