Prior to founding Zeeks, Elisabeth Kugler was a scientist and active researcher. Learn more about her research work in zebrafish, microscopy, and data analysis.

Postdoc Work: UCL (2020-2022)

The neurovascular unit (NVU) is a complex multi-hetero-cellular structure that allows the function of the nervous system. Understanding how NVU components are linked is essential to understanding brain and eye function. 

Müller Glia (MG) are the principal retinal glial cell type with a stereotypic shape linked to their maturation and physiological status. #GliaMorph is a semi-automatic image analysis pipeline to quantify glia morphology.
