This second Amsterdam Science Now edition will focus on three fascinating research projects.

Kin Ki Jim will tell you about the unique features of the zebrafish from a developmental biology and genetics point of view, and the emergence as a model for human diseases. His research focuses on central nervous system infectious diseases and he performed this research at the Amsterdam UMC as a part of his PhD thesis work. Currently he is a resident in Medical Microbiology at the Amsterdam UMC.

Bastijn van den Boom will explain how deep brain stimulation reduces compulsive grooming. Van den Boom is PhD student in the research team Neuromodulation and Behaviour at the NIN.

Last but not least, Tanneke den Blaauwen will tell you about bacteria that grow in width instead of length and consequently cleaves itself in two along its long axis, and the mechanism behind this unusual method of division. Den Blaauwen is Associate Professor Bacterial Cell Biology at the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences, University of Amsterdam.
