Seulkee Yang, MSc
Researcher

I am a biologist, who is passionate about electrophysiology. I received my BSc in Biology and a MSc in Neuro- and bahavioral Biology from Free University of Berlin, Germany. At Nam lab, I plan to dissect pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease with strong emphasis on astrocyte using a wide range of methods including electrophysiology and optogenetics.

I am a biologist, who is passionate about electrophysiology. I received my BSc in Biology from Free University of Berlin, Germany, where I took my first step into Science. My research interest narrowed down to Neuroscience after conducting my thesis project at Sigrist lab. Using aging Drosophila brain as my model, I studied the utililty of Spermidine as possible anti-againg mediator. I then obtained a MSc in Biology from the same university with specialization in Neuro- and bahavioral Biology. During my master, I participated in a project at Kettenmann lab, where glia physiology is studied. This experience led me to conduct master thesis at Wolf lab to investigate the implication of autistic mouse retina in retinal function and microglial properties. At Nam lab, I plan to dissect pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease with strong emphasis on astrocyte using a wide range of methods including electrophysiology and optogenetics.
