Search among the members of the Leopoldina for experts in specific fields or research topics. After entering a name in the "Name" field, click on "Search" to go directly to a member profile. With the input and selection in the fields "City" and „Country", you can limit your search locally or regionally, or target specific sections of the Leopoldina. Alternatively or in combination a full-text search is possible for all member profiles - use the upper input field. The use of operators like AND, NOT or * is permitted in the full-text search. For example, you may search for "genetics" or "*genet*" to get results with "genetic" or "molecular genetics".

Rüdiger Wehner’s research revolves around the neuroethological analysis of insect vision and visually guided behaviour. His multidisciplinary approach combines neuroanatomical, neurophysiological and behavioural analyses with computer simulations and robotic implementations. By focussing on one group of organisms, the desert ant Cataglyphis, he has rendered this insect a model organism in the study of animal navigation. At Zurich University Rüdiger Wehner has served for more than two decades as the Director of the Institute of Zoology, which he converted into a well recognized multifaceted institution of biological research and teaching spanning the range from molecular developmental genetics in Drosophila to vertebrate behaviour. As a Non-Resident Permanent Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Study (Wissenschaftskolleg) at Berlin Wehner has established the Fellow programmes in the life sciences now common at this institution.
