Alison Canty joins the Group as a MRC Career Development Fellow.  Alison has a long-standing interest in the formation and plasticity of neural circuitry.  This interest has seen her move around the globe, from Melbourne University for her PhD studies in axon guidance in the developing spinal cord, to the Karolinska institute in Stockholm, Sweden, to investigate the integration of interneurons into the juvenile cerebral cortex.  Her research interests have gradually moved from investigating molecules involved in central nervous system development, to understanding circuitry rearrangements in the mature brain in both health and disease.  We are very excited that such a talented and experienced scientist decided to join our brand new lab.  Welcome, Alison.
