Happy 2 year anniversary in the lab to our amazing research assistant @CarmenMorenoGo8! It's time for a Zoom celebration ūüéČ https://t.co/T7QXNxENFk theSeriousLab photo

We are really excited to shout from the digital rooftops that we have a new project funded by BBSRC with the excellent @Femtoscopist! We will build a cool new imaging system for looking at bioengineered scaffolds and 3D neural cultures. Looking for new team members so contact us! https://t.co/oKFsceOM9h

Very excited to announce a new BBSRC funded collaborative microscope development project
with @theSeriousLab and the brilliant Robert Henderson.
ISO-FLIM: Isotropic resolution functional neuron imaging. We're looking to hire 3 postdocs in London or Edinburgh https://t.co/usIJ30VU7v

As several people asked about our arrangements... We have locked-down the lab, with all activities frozen last Friday and other long term experiments winding down this week. Everybody is working from home on papers with first virtual lab meeting today and e-journal club tomorrow!

Escape Room lab outing for all the team! And we made it out with all the people we started with... https://t.co/RovegsJeWb theSeriousLab photo

Very delayed, but finally... Lab Outing to welcome to our newest team member, Pacharaporn (Poy), who is joining us for her PhD and will focus on bioengineered cortical circuits! https://t.co/aaN660dF7J theSeriousLab photo

Ok, last group meeting of 2019... With a veritable insulin-challenge thanks to a box of doughnuts and a full pandoro. Science seems somehow better with glucose overdose... And lab-made Xmas decorations are always a plus. Thanks to our Amazing Team for all the hard work this year! https://t.co/XoozDrTT4f theSeriousLab photo
OUR PHILOSOPHY:

We firmly believe that in order to really understand something, it is certainly necessary to take it apart, study and understand every piece and then… to put it back together!

We stand on the shoulders of giants:  for over 30 years neurobiology, genetics, cell and developmental biology have worked together to provide an understanding of which cells, molecules and genes are necessary to construct the nervous system. And in parallel, the emergence of stem cell technologies and bioengineering techniques has given us the tools to interact with biological material in a productive way.

Our aim is to combine these fields into a dedicate research avenue, gaining an understanding of how the nervous system works in health and disease by trying to construct bespoke complex circuitry in vitro. Engineering connections between neural cells in a meaningful way, to advance our knowledge and push towards translational outcomes.
