Gaurav Das


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Gaurav studied Chemistry and Biotechnology as an undergraduate in Ahmednagar College under University of Pune. He then went on to get a masters degree in Biotechnology from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. For his PhD he worked on cell cycle control of mouse retinal development, supervised by Dr Edward Levine at the University of Utah at Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. He joined the Waddell Lab as a postdoc, then at the University of Massachusetts Medical School at Worcester, to study the neural circuit basis of learning, memory and behaviour in fruit flies. In 2012 he moved to Oxford with the lab. He intends to specify the neural circuits representing discrete food components, motivational inputs from nutrient-deprivation states and novel food related behaviours.
