Darren W Williams
Group Leader and Reader at King's College London. My research focuses on the mechanisms that control the assembly of neural networks. I have explored how network components are generated from distinct neural precursors, how axons and dendrites are guided to their targets and the way dendrites undergo large-scale pruning. Although my lab uses Drosophila, my experience with zebrafish and teaching human neuroanatomy to medical students broadly influences the questions I ask.
