Hassan Hosseini (PhD Student)

Hassan Hosseini (PhD Student)

Hassan did an interdisciplinary master in cognitive psychology, mathematics and physics which quickly raised his interest in neuronal correlates of higher brain function in Tehran University. This led him to a 2nd master degree in system neuroscience at the University of Oldenburg. Later, he started his master project at the Charité in the lab of Prof. Rosemund. His thesis focused on changes in synaptic transmission and fusion machinery in a rare disease called “Baker-Gordon Syndrome”. His current research interest is to study major input and output region of the Locus coeruleus through a combination of electrophysiology, optogenetics, and mouse behavior.

Celina Dölle (Tech Trainee)

Celina Dölle (Tech Trainee)

Celina is doing her dual education trainee towards a biological laboratory technician to one half at the LIN and her theoretical part at BbSAbi. In her last monthes before finishing her studies, she is supporting our team in daily lab works and is cracking any troubles in molecular cloning or in Benchling. Besides her work she is interested in music and plays guitar in a local band here in Magdeburg and elsewhere.

Daniel Giffney (PhD student)

Daniel Giffney (PhD student)

Daniel received his honours bachelor’s degree and higher diploma in Neuroscience from Trinity College Dublin. In his final year thesis, he used an electrophysiological approach to examine the role of septal projections on the allocentric remapping of place cells in the hippocampus (link). He has developed an interest in acquiring and analysing neuronal data using various experimental and computational approaches. He is working as a fast-track PhD student on the LIN Special Project “Autophagy meets Sleep” together with Anna Karpova and Matthias.
