Institute of Molecular Biotechnology Austria (IMBA), Vienna


Christopher Esk is a postdoctoral fellow in developmental biology at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) in Vienna, Austria. He studied biochemistry in Hannover, Germany and Melbourne, Australia. He obtained a PhD from Leibniz University, Hannover, Germany in conjunction with the University of California, San Francisco, USA in the lab of Dr. Frances Brodsky studying intracellular trafficking events contributing to glucose metabolism and diabetes. He joined Dr. Juergen Knoblich’s lab at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology, Vienna, Austria to study mammalian neurogenesis and has developed sophisticated parallel in vivo loss-of-function strategies.   

At Future Medicine he will talk about “Parallel in vivo screening for rapid gene function discovery”.
