LABHopper Research

LABHOPPER Research was founded in may 2013. It is owned by Herman van Veen and it is intended to be a platform for a number of disciplines rarely found in one person:
  • aerospace engineering,
  • life sciences, and
  • commercial flying.
Running life sciences project: Two-photon imaging of dendritic spines in pyramidal hippocampal cells. Next year this project will be extended to Two-photon imaging of live neural networks under real-time stimuli.
