Developmental Neuroscience

Interests

I'm studying the development of the retina, particularly, how the different subsets of retinal neurons organise at the tissue level in early development. I am using the Zebrafish as a model organism, and am currently using a combination of transgenic Zebrafish lines, primary cell culture, and various live imaging techniques to investigate this.
