Person of Trust of the iBehave Network

The person of trust, Prof. Dr. Gaia Tavosanis of iBehave network is a designated individual who serves as a resource for members of the network who may be experiencing issues related to misconduct or other unethical behavior. The person of trust is appointed to maintain strict confidentiality and impartiality in their role, and to ensure that all individuals involved in a reported incident are treated with respect and fairness. They may work closely with the network’s leadership team or scientific steering committee to establish and implement policies and procedures for addressing misconduct or other unethical behavior, and to promote a culture of integrity and ethical conduct within the network.

Prof. Dr. Gaia Tavosanis has a range of responsibilities, including receiving and investigating reports of misconduct or other unethical behavior within the network, providing support and resources to individuals who have experienced such behavior, and facilitating communication and resolution of conflicts within the network. Overall, she plays an important role in ensuring that the network maintains a culture of integrity, ethical conduct, and mutual respect, and that members feel safe and supported in reporting and addressing issues related to misconduct or other unethical behavior.

Professor Dr. Gaia Tavosanis is a renowned neurobiologist and researcher in the field of dendrite biology. She has completed her Ph.D. studies in the lab of Dr. Cayetano Gonzalez at the European Molecular Biology Laboratories in Heidelberg from 1995 to 1999, and obtained her Ph.D.

degree at the Ruprecht-Karls University of Heidelberg in 1999. After completing her Ph.D., Dr. Tavosanis conducted postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Professor Dr. Yuh-Nung Jan at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) from 1999 to 2003. In 2003, Dr. Tavosanis became Junior Group Leader of the Dendrite Differentiation Group at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried-Munich.

She habilitated in Neurobiology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in 2013. Since 2017, Dr. Tavosanis has been a Full Professor of Neurogenetics at the University of Bonn in Germany. Additionally, since 2011 she has been a research group leader at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Bonn.

Currently, Dr. Tavosanis is a full professor at the University of RWTH Aachen, where she leads a research group studying the molecular mechanisms that regulate dendrite development, maintenance, and plasticity in fruit flies. Her research has contributed significantly to our understanding of how dendrites form, and how dendritic plasticity contributes to neural development and function.
