Dorothee Dormann

Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and IMB Mainz

Dormann is a leading expert in the field of molecular neurodegeneration. After studies of biochemistry in Tübingen and a PhD at the Rockefeller University, she did postdoctoral research and headed an independent Emmy Noether group at LMU Munich, before joining JGU Mainz as Heisenberg Full Professor of Molecular Cell Biology. Her team made fundamental contributions to the molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative disorders, in particular how mislocalization and aggregation of RNA-binding proteins occur in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Alzheimer’s disease. Recently, Dormann has been awarded an ERC Consolidator grant to further her research into neurodegeneration-linked RNA-binding proteins.
