We are most delighted that Maxime Zimmermann has just passed his PhD viva!

For his thesis, maxime looked at the retinal basis of colour vision in zebrafish, with a key focus on bipolar cells. He also spent much energy building a wide range of open source lab tools, including visual stimulators.

Thank you to Isaac Bianco and Andy Penn for serving as examiners, and Guy Richardson for chairing.
