Research & Travel Placements

CoMPLEX supports visits by our PhD students to research centres outside the UK to enrich their research experience and help develop their scientific career.

CoMPLEX International Research Fellowships

The students below have been recepients of this internal fellowship.

  • Zena Hadjivasiliou
    Zena visited the Mathematical Biology Laboratory of the Kyushu University, Japan. There, she collaborated with world-renowned theoretical biologist Professor Yoh Iwasa.
  • Julija Krupic
    Julija visited Prof. Fritjof Helmchen’s lab in the University of Zurich to combine Ca2+ imaging with tetrode recordings to record in vivo neural activity in the rat barrel cortex.
  • Lorette Noiret
    Lorette worked with Prof. Thomas’ group to develop a model of renal ammonia handling. Prof. Thomas is one of the few modellers who specialises in renal physiology.
  • Andrew Rider
    Andrew visited the NTT Communication Science Laboratories in Atsugi. There he collaborated with the internationally renowned psychophysicist Dr Shin'ya Nishida on a new approach to the human visual perception of global motion.  
  • Samantha Lee
    Samantha spent a summer at the Department of Neuroscience and Cell Biology at Montana State University. There, she aided in the creation of a FRET-based sensor of peptide secretion.
  • Sam Tazzyman
    Sam visited the Mathematical Biology Laboratory of the Kyushu University, Japan. There, Sam collaborated with world-renowned theoretical biologist Professor Yoh Iwasa.
  • Alexander Stewart
    Alex went to the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel, one of the world’s top ranking research centres at the heart of advances in the science of complex systems.

 

Harvard Systems Biology Retreat

As part of the collaboration process between CoMPLEX and Harvard Medical School, a selected few CoMPLEX students had the chance to join the Harvard System Biology retreat on the 14 and 15 of May 2010.
