The Winkelmann Lab

Welcome to The Winkelmann Lab

Our goal is to investigate the genetic architecture of neurological complex genetic diseases. We focus on restless legs syndrome (RLS) and want to understand how the functional organization of neuronal sensor motor circuits is altered in RLS patients leading to disease manifestation. We aim to identify genetic and environmental factors modifying disease susceptibility; establish animal models and understand the mode of action of current drugs as well as establishing personalized treatment options in the future.
