Claude Brodski obtained his M.D. degree from the Technical University Munich. He performed the work for his doctoral thesis at the Max-Planck-Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried, studying the influence of neurotrophic factors on transmitter phenotype differentiation. As a post-doctoral fellow at the Max-Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Munich, he investigated the genetic mechanisms directing the development of monoaminergic neurons in the CNS. Currently, he is a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Medical Faculty of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and head of the Laboratory for Developmental and Behavioural Neurogenetics. His research focuses on the molecular mechanisms controlling the development of the nervous system and its implication in brain functions and disorders.
