Dr Del Bene


Monday 11th January, 13pm (auditorium), we have received Dr Del Bene at Imagine for a seminar entitled :
Dissecting neural circuit development in the zebrafish visual system



Dr Del Bene heads the lab of Neuronal Circuit Development  in Curie Institute in Paris since 2010. His lab is interested in studying the formation and function of the visual system of zebrafish larvae using in vivo time-lapse microscopy and state-of-the-art “connectomic” and “optogenetic” approaches to monitor and perturb neuronal activity.

Dr Del Bene completed his PhD at EMBL in Heidelberg  in 2004, after 4 years in the Laboratory of Prof. Jochen Wittbrodt, followed by a postdoc in the lab of Prof. Herwig Baier, in the department of Physiology, UC San Francisco. Recently, his group has successfully optimized highly efficient CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knock-out approach in zebrafish.
