Welcome to our lab!

C. elegans is a genetic model to study fundamental principles that govern neuronal differentiation, circuit assembly and nervous system function.​ One goal in our laboratory is to understand how neurons and behaviour evolves with the age of the animal. C. elegans is well suited to address this question: it has a very well characterised nervous system, the lifespan genetics is well understood, It is transparent and short living. Several approaches are used including genetics, genomics, optogenetics, behaviour, and quantitative cell biology.

Our lab is part of the of the Neurophysiology Lab , the ULB Neuroscience Institute (UNI) of the University of Brussels (ULB)
