Welcome to our lab!

Our laboratory uses C. elegans as a genetic model to study the fundamental principles that govern nervous system function.​ We focus on the cell biology of neurons and how circuits generate and maintain behaviour over ageing. C. elegans is well suited to address these questions: it has a simple and well-characterised nervous system; it is transparent and short living. Several approaches are used including genetics, -omics, 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)
