Welcome to the Naneix Lab
Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen
The Naneix Lab is part of the “Obesity and Food Choice” research theme at the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen.
Our research is focused on the developmental aspects of the cognitive and neurobiological substrates underlying food-related behaviours, and how these processes are impacted by different diet lifestyles during early-life stages (childhood, adolescence). You can learn about it here.
Latest news from the lab
Last Saturday Fabien had the pleasure to do some workshop at the Aberdeen Science Centre for the Explorathon 2021. It was really nice to exchange with the public, do some funny taste testing with kids and families and show them videos of taste reactivity in different species.
We are very pleased to announced that the lab has been awarded by a grant from Tenovus Scotland for 1 year. Combined with our recent grant from The Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust ISSF, it will allow us to collect precious preliminary data on the impact of developmental obesity on corticolimbic circuits.
June is here and it is officially the Pride Month. So let’s celebrate and work together to build a better and more inclusive environment for LGBT+ people in STEM. Be proud, be you! In the lab it is also part of our values.
