Dr. Koyama is a group leader at the Janelia Farm Research Campus.
Minoru Koyama uses zebrafish to explore the link between the developmental patterns and functional architecture of neuronal circuits to find the general principles that govern the organization of the nervous system.
Minoru Koyama is a lab head at the Janelia Farm Research Campus. He is researching the link between the development and function of the brain through detailed analysis of the zebrafish brain at the cellular, synaptic, and circuit levels. He earned a BA in chemistry and a PhD in neurophysiology from the University of Tokyo, and he conducted postdoctoral research in the lab of Joseph Fetcho at Cornell University.
