Coloration is an important and fascinating feature in the biology of an organism. It plays key roles in several fundamental physiological, ecological, and evolutionary processes. My research focus are the molecular, genomic and developmental underpinnings of color patterns in cichlid fishes. Here, in a few million years, over 1,200 species of cichlid fishes have evolved to form repeated adaptive radiations in the East African lakes Victoria, Tanganyika, and Malawi giving rise to an astonishing diversity of species displaying various color patterns. My recent work gives insights into the genetic basis of repeated evolution and diversification of stripe patterns, and the importance of gene regulatory evolution for these processes.

Blindness alone affects 34 million people worldwide according to WHO (2016). Several diseases, such as retinitis pigmentosa, Leber's Congenital Amaurosis, Glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration due result in the functional impairment of vision impairment and ultimately blindness. Multiple therapeutic approaches have been developed during last decays including: neuroprotection, gene therapy, antibody therapy, optogenetics, neuroprotection, retinal prosthesis, and cell replacement therapy. As the utmost parameter of these therapies, we need to examine retinal functionality in animal models. To this end we quantified retinal coding diversity by the development of a visual characterization toolbox by which responses of retinal ganglion cells to different visual inputs were classified.

The musculoskeleton is a tremendously sophisticated and complex biomechanical organ system. It allows vertebrates, including us humans, to display a vast repertoire of movement and postural patterns and, consequently, of behaviors and functions. Our main goal is to understand the biological and biomechanical principles governing musculoskeletal development and function, maintenance and regeneration, as well as aging and pathology. Deciphering the mechanisms underlying these processes will pave the way for development of new therapeutic approaches for treatment of numerous musculoskeletal diseases, including congenital and degenerative, and injuries.

We demonstrate that amyloid plaque seeding is increased in the absence of functional TREM2. Increased seeding is accompanied by decreased microglial clustering around newly seeded plaques and reduced plaque associated Apolipoprotein E (ApoE). Reduced ApoE deposition in plaques is also observed in brains of AD patients carrying TREM2 coding variants. Proteomic analyses and microglia depletion experiments revealed a microglial origin of plaque associated ApoE. Longitudinal amyloid small animal positron emission tomography demonstrates accelerated amyloidogenesis in TREM2 loss of function mutants at early stages, which progressed at a lower rate with aging. These findings suggest that in the absence of functional TREM2 early amyloidogenesis is accelerated due to reduced phagocytic clearance of amyloid seeds despite reduced plaque associated ApoE.
