Prof. Marion Silies

Following her doctorate in Münster, Marion Silies conducted her postdoctoral research at Stanford University and headed the Emmy Noether- and ERC-funded junior research group "Visual Processing" at the European Neuroscience Institute in Göttingen before coming to Mainz in 2019 as Professor of Neurobiology. In Mainz, she will combine her experience in the fields of neuronal development and functional neurobiology and continue her research on the cellular mechanisms and neuronal networks of information processing in the brain, in particular the processing of visual information in Drosophila.
