Dr. Carmel Howe received MEng and Ph.D degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Nottingham, UK. Carmel’s Ph.D research focused on the development of sensors based on Surface Plasmon Resonance to detect single-cell electrical activity from cultured primary hippocampal neurons under the supervision of Dr. Noah Russell & Prof. Mark Fromhold.
Subsequently, Carmel held a research associate position in the lab of Dr. Amanda Foust at Imperial College London, UK where they developed new optical systems and applied computational reconstruction methods to detect network-level neuronal activity from fluorescent reporters in three-dimensional brain slices.
In Dr. James Frank’s lab, Carmel will be applying their skill set to the manipulation of excitable cells with photo-caged ligands in the endocannabinoid system.
