Empowering the Future of Neuroscience

Empowering the Future of Neurosceince

Benjamin Escribano

I am a neuroscientist with a passion for engineering, data analysis, and creative problem-solving. I hold a master’s degree in molecular biology from the University of Basel, where I studied synapse stability at the neuromuscular junction of fruit fly larvae using in vivo fluorescence microscopy and immunohistochemistry at the Friedrich Miescher Institute. During my dissertation at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern in Germany, I studied the formation of memory engrams in the Drosophila mushroom body using in vivo two-photon calcium imaging with olfactory stimulation and computational modeling. As a postdoctoral research scientist at the DZNE in Bonn, I switched my focus to address the effects of neurodegenerative disease on neuronal networks in the brain using in vivo deep brain two-photon calcium imaging with post-hoc molecular profiling in mice. A common denominator during my education was the development and implementation of experimental setups, programming analysis pipelines, and teaching those methods to my peers and students. At iBehave make, I aim to further support aspiring scientists during their implementation of state-of-the-art neuroscience tools while transferring the required know-how for their future careers.
