Congratulations to Ivo for successfully defending his BEP thesis! Now we have a fantastic microinjection system that we can use for many applications.
The first zebrafish are officially in the aquarium! Well done team!
Ivo Smink joins the lab to work on "open hardware" for his Applied Physics Bachelor's end project.
New study by Elizabeth and colleagues from UC Berkeley is featured as a cover article in Nature Chemical Biology. Our integrative study identified that copper is an important modulator of sleep in larval zebrafish.
dr. Nicolo' Ceffa joins the lab as a postdoc to design new light sheet instrumentation. Welcome Nicolo'!
Elizabeth is awarded an Enabling Technology Hotel grant from ZonMw to collaborate with the group of Bram Koster at Leiden University Medical Center. We will sort out how to best preserve zebrafish for large-scale electron microscopy. Thanks to ZonMw for the support!
Welcome to our biology lab technician and zebrafish caretaker, Leonie Gouweleeuw!
Fleur & Nooijen is building us a custom zebrafish aquarium.
Welcome to our new colleague, dr. Daan Brinks! Daan's lab will develop genetically-encoded voltage indicators.
Laura Maddalena joins the lab for her PhD on "Precision Multi-photon Optogenetics". Welcome Laura!
Elizabeth starts in ImPhys! The Zebrafish NeuroDevelopment lab is born! Anjella greets us with some fish inspiration from Paul Klee.
