Partnering with a pan European nematode group, NERVSPAN

We are delighted to be a partner for the EU-funded NERVSPAN research community that will develop an integrative approach to study various aspects of neuronal physiology throughout the lifespan of males and hermaphrodite worms.

The simplicity of the 302-node nervous system of the nematode C.elegans, makes this an attractive model organism for neuroscientists, however more work is required to fully understand and characterise the function of each of these neurons.  The possible applications for this work are limitless so we are delighted to be a part of this group. 

The NERVSPAN doctoral network is funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, the European Union’s reference programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training.
