- Waddell Group Research Group
Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Vincent obtained his PhD in April 2013 from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. During his thesis, supervised by Prof. Richard Benton at the Center for Integrative Genomics and supported by a Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds PhD Fellowship, he studied the evolution of the IR family of chemosensory receptors in insects, as well as their function in the Drosophila larval taste system.
He was awarded a Fellowship for Prospective Researchers from the Swiss National Science Foundation to work in the Waddell group on transcriptomic characterisation of memory relevant modulatory neurons and joined the Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour in July 2013.
