Peter Arthur-Farraj has attended the two-week zebrafish development and genetics course at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts to learn techniques such as microinjecting, cell transplant and live imaging amongst others. He will then be working with Professor Kelly Monk’s laboratory in Oregon Health and Science University in Portland for three months to start creating some zebrafish transgenic lines to use to investigate the communication between axons and Schwann cells during peripheral nerve injury and regeneration.


The Coleman Laboratory does world-leading research into mechanisms of axon and synapse loss, looking for ways to alleviate axonal diseases. Our priorities are high quality science, valuing and training people, and disseminating knowledge to scientists and the public.
