We would like to congratulate Ozgene’s long-term customer, Dr. Peter Mombaerts, on his recent TEDxBrussels Talk on Targeting Olfaction in mice.

Dr. Mombaerts is the Director of the Max Planck Research Unit for Neurogenetics in Frankfurt, Germany. His research focuses on the neurobiology of smell in mice with a special interest in how the brain is wired to recognise each smell. Ozgene has been working with Dr. Mombaerts for a number of years supplying mouse models for his research.

Check out Dr. Mombaerts’ talk here and don’t skip out on the end.
