About: ClareBuckley

*CURRENTLY RECRUITING STUDENTS AND POSTDOCS* My lab uses optogenetics and live confocal imaging to manipulate the polarity, signalling and division of single cells within the developing zebrafish brain. In combination with CRISPR-mediated functional knock down experiments, this allows us to directly test the role of cell polarity in building epithelial integrity during organ development and in breaking it during disease.

Research Assistant/Associate: Zebrafish Optogenetics and Live-Imaging

Posted by on January 9th, 2018

The Buckley lab at the department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience (PDN), University of Cambridge is recruiting a postdoctoral research associate or research assistant. The lab uses cutting edge optogenetic and live confocal imaging approaches within the whole zebrafish neural tube to manipulate the polarity of single cells (Buckley et al., 2016, PMID: 26766447). In[…]

Moving proteins within living embryos using light

Posted by on February 24th, 2016

By Clare Buckley and Rachel Moore One of the things that we find most challenging about working with whole vertebrate organisms is how we can tie ourselves in knots trying to unpick the function of a single component within such an intricate and interconnected web of proteins and signalling cascades. All too often knocking out[…]
