Sergey Shityakov is currently a researcher in the Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care at Würzburg University Hospital. His research interests include blood-brain barrier research, molecular docking, and molecular dynamics simulation of different biological systems, such as brain transporter proteins and carbon nanostructures. His work in these areas has been published in various high-impact peer-reviewed journals including Nature and presented at scientific conferences.
After studying psychology, I obtained my PhD from the University of Mainz (Germany) in 2008, working on visual depth perception. I then moved to the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (Germany) to join the Department of Systems Neuroscience as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2011, I started as PI of the independent research group “Social and Applied Psychophysiology” at the same institution. After receiving an ERC starting grant for the project "Mechanisms of Social Attention", I was appointed Professor for Experimental Clinical Psychology at the University of Würzburg (Germany) in 2015.

I am interested in social evolution and the evolution of mutualisms. My model are fungus-farming ambrosia beetles. Currently I aim to find the mechanisms behind pest-control in the fungus gardens and how the beetle trigger their fungi to produce fruiting structures. Techniques I use: behavioural observations, SEM, next-generation sequencing, lab breeding of beetles and culturing of fungi/bacteria
