As an Einstein Visiting Fellow, Zoltán Molnár from the University of Oxford works together with Britta Eickholt's neuromedical research group at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin. In addition, he supports the NeuroCure Cluster of Excellence. Britta Eickholt's team brings together experts from various research backgrounds to investigate brain development processes, neural connections, and the formation of neural circuits. One of the aims of their work is to gain a better understanding of autistic and epileptic disorders. With his research background, Zoltán Molnár will help lay the foundations of a new field of research that will be explored collaboratively by scientists at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin and Oxford University.
