OpenSPIM: an open access light sheet microscopy platform

Light sheet microscopy is an emerging technique that allows developmental and cell biologists to record entire living systems with minimal photo-damage over extended periods of time. The technology has thus far been applied to produce spectacular proof of principle recordings of model organism embryos which capture the developing specimen at cellular resolution throughout early development. True biological discoveries using this technology are, however, yet to be realized and will require that...

Starting cognitive neuroscience in Argentina

By former HFSP Fellow and Career Development Awardee Mariano Sigman

The aim of the HFSP postdoctoral fellowship scheme is to identify future scientific leaders. This means not only the support of productive postdocs but of those who go on to have major impacts in their scientific careers. Former HFSP Fellows who return to countries other than the main scientific powerhouses face special problems. In this article, former HFSP Fellow and Career Development Award holder, Mariano Sigman, charts his path to establishing a new, world class, interdisciplinary...
