    Research interests

    Brain features including learning and memory are based on the performance of chemical synapses, i.e., their dynamics and their various forms of plasticity. Research interests in the department Neurochemistry and Molecular Biology is concerned with molecular and cellular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in health and disease. Key research topics are…

    • the function and plasticity of the presynaptic apparatus for neurotransmitter release at the active zone; 
    • the regulation of synaptic proteostasis by autophagic processes
    • physiological and pathological roles of the perisynaptic extracellular matrix;
    • contribution to SynGO ( and SynProt ( – databases and platforms to analyze the dynamics of synaptic proteomes in health and disease.

    Curriculum vitae

    Eckart D. Gundelfinger (PhD) acted acts as managing scientific director of the LIN until 2020. He was Professor of Molecular Neurobiology at the Otto von Guericke University, Medical Faculty in Magdeburg and one of the spokespersons of the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences (CBBS) Magdeburg. He studied Biology at the University of Stuttgart, performed research for his doctoral thesis at the May Planck Institute for Biology in Tübingen and spent two years as postdoctoral EMBO fellow at the EMBL in Heidelberg. In 1984, he started his research on molecular mechanisms of brain synapses, first as a staff scientist at the Center for Molecular Biology of the University of Heidelberg (ZMBH, with Heinrich Betz) and from 1988 in his own group at the Center for Molecular Neurobiology in Hamburg (ZMNH). From 1992-2020 he headed the Dept. of Neurochemistry and Molecular Biology at the LIN. Since 2021 he is retired and works as a visiting scientist in the research group 'Neuroplasticity' of LIN and in the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology of Otto von Guericke University. Current research is focused on molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity underlying learning and memory and on disease mechanisms of synapthopathies.
