Caghan Kizil (born October 14, 1981) is a neuroscientist and geneticist, who is leading a Helmholtz research group in German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases within Helmholtz Association and in Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB) at the TU Dresden. His research culminates interdisciplinary approaches harboring genetics, neuroscience, cell biology, neuroimmunology, biotechnology and drug development. His team focuses on learning from Zebrafish how to enable the adult brain to better cope with neurodegenerative diseases and regenerate. By generating the first adult zebrafish brain Alzheimer's model, and single cell sequencing-based investigation of the stem cell plasticity in this model, he aims to understand the molecular programs for zebrafish brain to induce regenerative neural stem cell plasticity. He is also developing innovative tools for comparative studies in mammalian brains such as 3D human brain models in laboratory environment, aiming to generate novel in vitro platforms for drug development.
