Ulrich Mueller


Ulrich Mueller has been with the Scripps Research Institute since 2003 and prior to that he was at the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Basel, Switzerland. His research focus is on auditory perception and neuronal circuit formation. He and his laboratory team identify and study genes that control the function of the auditory sense organ of mammals. They also analyze the mechanisms that establish neuronal connections between the auditory sense organs and the cerebral cortex, and the formation of cell layers and neuronal circuits within the cortex. Dr. Mueller received his Ph.D. from the Albertus Magnus University in Cologne, Germany.
