Lukas Neukomm received his MSc at ETH Zürich, where he studied cellular energetics in Prof. Dr. Theo Walliman’s laboratory. He then moved to the University of Zürich, where he completed his PhD in Molecular Biology under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Michael Hengartner. There, he studied how sick, unhealthy cells are either tolerated, or removed by the surrounding tissue in the roundworm C. elegans. For his PostDoctoral training, he moved to the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he focused on axon degeneration in the fruit fly D. melanogaster, mentored by Prof. Dr. Marc Freeman at the Neurobiology Department / Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He was recently awarded with a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Assistant Professor position and started his own lab at the DNF in June 2018.
