Forget Disneyland the most exciting thing happening in Florida this summer is Ana Faro’s talk at the International Zebrafish Meeting. Sorry Mickey!
Four zebrafish PhD students have spent their summer learning, teaching and eating pasteis de nata on the Advanced Behaviour Technology at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown.
A research image from the Zebrafish Brain Atlas (zebrafishbrain.org) by PhD student Kate Turner is featured in a BBC article on tracking cells in the embryo.
The female sex hormone estrogen reduces sleep disruption in zebrafish genetically designed to help understand autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
A new genome editing method called CRISPR/Cas9 was used to study the role of the transporter in zebrafish and showed that when the SLC39A14 gene is disrupted, there is a build-up of manganese in the brain and impaired motor behaviour similar to that seen in humans
(but failed to bring back any pasteis de nata)
Joanna was awarded a travel grant to attend the Champalimaud Neuroscience Symposium in September 2016.
