About: nikolaou_n

Nikolas Nikolaou received his PhD in Anatomy and Developmental Biology from University College London. During his doctoral studies in the lab of David Wilkinson at the National Institute for Medical Research his examinations centred around understanding the cell signalling mechanisms regulating the balance between neural progenitor maintenance and differentiation in the developing brain. He then moved to King’s College London where he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in two labs. In the lab of Martin Meyer he used high-content functional imaging techniques in order to identify and characterise the response properties of developing visual circuits in zebrafish larvae. He then moved to Corinne Houart's lab to examine the cytoplasmic functions of splicing proteins in axons during neuronal connectivity. Nikolas started his own lab at the University of Bath in January 2020. He will use structural and functional imaging techniques together with transcriptomic analyses in order to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms that allow the formation of functional and cell-type specific connections in the brain.
