Prestigious scholarships awarded to the Keays lab

Patrick Heisterkamp from the Keays laboratory has been awarded a prestigious scholarship by the German Academic Scholarship Foundation to undertake his doctoral studies at LMU. Coupled with a fellowship from the Marianne-Plehn-Program Patrick will exploit state-of-the-art cerebral organoid technology to interrogate how mutations in an uncharacterised microtubule associated protein (MAST1) causes neurodevelopmental disease. “I am very excited to be joining the graduate school of neuroscience at LMU, it’s an amazing opportunity”, said Patrick over a late afternoon beer in the English Garden. “I have some unconventional ideas, that I can now pursue thanks to the support of the Marianne-Plehn-Program.”
