First ever Discovery Fellowship for UCL awarded to NPP’s Dr Asaph Zylbertal
22 January 2019
We are very pleased to congratulate Asaph Zylbertal who has been successful in securing the BBSRC Discovery Fellowship. This highly competitive scheme, previously called Future Leader Fellowships, provides support for researchers wishing to undertake independent research and gain leadership skills.
The award of £300K will allow Asaph to study how the transformation of visual input to behaviour is modulated in the brain, by combining two cutting edge techniques: cellular resolution whole-brain functional imaging in larval zebrafish and modern machine learning techniques. The work will be undertaken in Dr Isaac Bianco's lab.
This is the first Discovery Fellowship ever awarded to any UCL researcher. Please join us in congratulating Asaph for his outstanding achievement.
