Christopher Gregg in Hamburg
The Canadian scientist Dr. Christopher Gregg, Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University and 2010 winner of the Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology, visited Eppendorf headquarters in Hamburg in June of 2011.
On this occasion Dr. Gregg gave a talk about his ground-breaking work on maternal and paternal gene expression in the brain. His research focuses on genes that alter their expression in the brains of offspring according to whether they were inherited from the father versus the mother. As a reminder of his visit to Hamburg Dr. Gregg was presented with Eppendorf’s new Research® plus pipette.
