The Tuschl group, which will join Zebrafish UCL (http://zebrafishucl.org/) and collaborate closely with Steve Wilson’s lab in CDB, will study zebrafish disease models of inherited manganese transporter defects with the view to developing new treatment strategies for this group of neurodegenerative disorders.
