Our Team | van Swinderen Lab
The Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland is home to the van Swinderen lab. Currently, we are four postdoctoral researchers, one research assistant, two PhD students and two MPhil students. Each member of our lab works on different projects relating to sleep, visual attention and anaethesia using a range of models from Drosophila Melanogaster to rat cortical neurons.
Using these models we hope to answer questions such as the function and the genetics of sleep, how visual attention works and the mystery behind molecular mechanism of general anaesthetics.
