About: David Lyons

I received my B.Sc. (Neuroscience, 1999) and Ph.D. (Developmental Biology, 2003) from University College London, and then undertook postdoctoral work at Stanford University in the Department of Developmental Biology with Prof. William Talbot (2004-2009). In 2009, I joined the Centre for Neuroregeneration at the University of Edinburgh to establish my own independent research group, using zebrafish as a model organism to dissect mechanisms of nervous system formation.

PhD studentship available: Chemical systems biology in zebrafish

Posted by on October 27th, 2010

We are seeking applications from highly motivated candidates, with a physical sciences background, and an interest in biology, to carry out a PhD to establish zebrafish as a model organism for chemical systems biology with which to carry out high-throughput chemical biology screens. The zebrafish is a well-established vertebrate model organism due to its amenability[…]
