We have yet to understand how embryonic brain development gives rise to brain function and how deficits in this process lead to brain disorders. To help improve this understanding, Dr. Holly Gibbs is interested in developing accessible microscopy, labeling, visualization, and bioimage informatics tools for creating multi-scale models of the emergence of brain structure and function. She earned her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2014 studying neurodevelopment in zebrafish using multi-photon microscopy with Dr. Alvin Yeh and Dr. Arne Levken. She joined the MIC in March 2019, where she is currently funded as an Imaging Scientist by the Chan Zuckerburg Initiative. This grant program aims to provide imaging cores with support for accelerating the adoption of novel imaging techniques and open source processing software at their institutions.
