The Bianco and Dreosti labs are really excited to be part of the ZENITH (ZEbrafish Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Training Hub) programme.

ZENITH is now recruiting 15 graduate students to start their PhD’s in 2020. They will undertake interdisciplinary systems neuroscience projects investigating sensorimotor processing using larval zebrafish.

The Bianco and Dreosti labs at UCL will be recruiting three students.

Visit the official website to learn all about the scheme, the available projects and download the application pack. Applications close on Jan 5th 2020.

Fellowship Award to Asaph!

Fellowship Award to Asaph!

Congratulations to Asaph who was recently awarded a prestigious BBSRC Discovery Fellowship. It is all the more impressive because this is the first Discovery Fellowship ever awarded to any UCL researcher!

The award will allow Asaph to combine cellular resolution whole-brain functional imaging in larval zebrafish and modern machine learning techniques, to study how the brain transforms visual input to behaviour.

The Bianco lab are really excited to be part of a consortium that has been awarded funding from the EC Horizon 2020 ITN scheme. Our ZENITH (ZEbrafish Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Training Hub) programme will be training 15 graduate students in interdisciplinary systems neuroscience projects investigating sensorimotor processing using larval zebrafish.

Congratulations to everyone in the consortium and especially Claire Wyart and Alexandra Chukas for coordinating it all.
