Thomas Taetzsch, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

My research focuses on characterizing the function of the fibroblast growth factor binding protein (FGFBP1) at synapses and in skeletal muscles. In another line of research, I am studying the role of synaptically-enriched microRNAs in skeletal muscles.  In addition, I am investigating the integrity of the RISC-complex, molecules required for microRNA biogenesis and function, in disease conditions.
