Zebrafish are Leading the Way for Future Work in Spinal Cord Development and Regeneration

Over the past year, Postdoctoral Fellow Benjamin Lindsey has put his heart and soul into his postdoctoral research at the University of Ottawa. His success in research to date has landed him an Assistant Professor position in the Department of Human Anatomy and Cell Science at the University of Manitoba, which he will begin in February 2019 and where he will establish his own laboratory in neural stem cell plasticity and regeneration.

He credits the incredible opportunities that his supervisor Professor Tuan Bui granted him throughout his postdoctoral fellowship. In August 2017, he was pleased to join the Neural Motor Control lab in the Department of Biology where he continues to study spinal cord injury in mice and zebrafish along with Prof. Bui. Benjamin was awarded a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) postdoctoral fellowship, and recently published an international collaborative review in Progress in Neurobiology. He associates these successes to the support he receives from his wife Lyndsay and from his supervisor Prof. Bui, as well as to his continuous self-motivation to publish high-quality science papers and work with excellent collaborators.
