Our lab in the news

Congratulations to Yusuke Hirabayashi, 2016 recipient of the prestigious PRESTO (Precursory Research for Embryonic Science and Technology) award from the Japan Science and Technology Agency. PRESTO promotes goal-oriented basic research that is unique, challenging, and among the most advanced of its kind in the world. Dr Hirabayashi will analyze the organelles and synapses of single neurons in a complex brain structure by a newly developed light microscopy-electron microscopy correlative method with PRESTO.
