Jochen Meier, PhD

Doctor Meier graduated from Ruprecht Karls University Heidelberg in 1995. He obtained the Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience from Université Pierre et Marie Curie Paris in 2000 under auspicious supervision by Professor Antoine Triller. His career was furthermore advanced by the inspiring research philosophy of Professor Rosemarie Grantyn at the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, which culminated in 2006 in the venia legendi et docendi in physiology. Since that time he is independent research group leader at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin. His interdisciplinary biomedical research focuses on gene regulation and posttranscriptional processing (RNA splicing and editing) of synaptic proteins with regard to excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmission, synaptic plasticity and neural network homeostasis, and their reference to behavior and neuropsychiatric diseases such as temporal lobe epilepsy. Doctor Meier joined the editorial boards of European Journal of Neuroscience (as scientific review associate since 2008) and Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience (as chief editor since 2010). As a Professor for Molecular Neurophysiology at the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin he is furthermore trying to convey the spirit of innovative research to medical students by teaching basic medical concepts and interdisciplinary neuroscience.
