Nicole’s project will use synthetic biology to develop new genetic methods for accessing and manipulating neurons. These efforts will help us gain insights into how populations of neurons process information and drive behavior.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 24, 2017:
