Regulation of cell fate maintenance and neuronal maturation

The transcription factor Sox11 is an essential regulator of adult neurogenesis in the DG. In my research, I aim to determine the impact of Sox11 downregulation on cell fate maintenance and neuronal maturation of adult-generated immature neurons. Furthermore, I seek to identify and functionally analyze Sox11 co-factors to understand the transcriptional regulatory network controlling key steps in adult neurogenesis.
