Shoh Asano

Shoh Asano received his PhD in Biophysics, working in the multi-disciplinary environment of the Molecular Structural Biology group of Prof. Wolfgang Baumeister at the Max-Planck Institute of Biochemistry. During that time, Shoh studied the ultrastructure inside single synapses and neurons by means of electron cryo-tomography. He is now a postdoctoral associate in the Synthetic Neurobiology group of Prof. Ed Boyden at the MIT Media Lab and shifted his research towards a more broad understanding of the neural circuitry. To this end, he follows his passion for fluorescence microscopy and computational analysis to visualize and solve the brain architecture.
