Benjamin Judkewitz

Deep imaging in transparent brains

The Judkewitz lab uses a combination of optical and molecular tools to study brain-wide circuits in one of the smallest living vertebrates, Danionella translucida.

The Judkewitz lab is located at the Charité / Humboldt University campus in central Berlin. It uses a combination of optical and molecular tools to study brain-wide circuits in one of the smallest living vertebrates, Danionella translucida. Established in 1710, Charité is one of the largest medical schools in Europe. It lays claim to more than half of all German Nobel Prize winners in Physiology or Medicine, including Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, and Paul Ehrlich.
