The four European scientists, Bamberg, Hegemann, Miesenböck and Nagel, made the fundamental observations and discoveries and developed light-sensitive molecules that can be introduced into specific types of neuron.
In 2003, Nagel, Bamberg, Hegemann and colleagues described a variant of Channelrhodopsin (ChR2), which allowed more rapid light activation of the associated channel.
Nagel and Bamberg supplied ChR2 to the two young American scientists, Boyden and Deisseroth, who then successfully expressed ChR2 in mammalian neurons.
Between 2005 and 2007, Hegemann, Boyden, Bamberg, Nagel and Deisseroth worked to develop optogenetic methods for inhibiting and stimulating neurons.

As part of this 3-year research collaboration agreement, Fovea's team will work with the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, based in Frankfurt, Germany, and led by Professor Ernst Bamberg, one of the founding fathers in optogenetics and a pioneer in understanding application of retinal binding channelrhodopsins.
"The cooperation is a big step forward to bring the optogenetic approach to the clinics", added Ernst Bamberg, Director of the Max Planck Institute (MPI) of Biophysics.
