How has the environment at the Champalimaud Neuroscience Programme influenced your work? We develop and use high resolution, dynamic, quantitative readouts of behavior. This is a real strength at the institute and strongly resonates with me due to the approach I developed while working on the cell biology of trachea morphogenesis. For me, biology is about regulating dynamic processes and if you really want to understand what is going on you need to get a handle on the dynamics of the system. In… Expand
