“Science is like a jigsaw puzzle” – an interview

As a scientist Dr Sebastian Rumpf likes to probe into questions that he finds interesting. With his research group he studies how neuronal extensions atrophy. One of his main aims is to impart to other people the pleasure he derives from his research work.

  • Papers in the research focus “cell dynamics and imaging”
