Group LeaderSingapore Bioimaging Consortium
Yu Fu received his PhD in Neuroscience from Stony Brook University and did his postdoctoral training at the University of California San Francisco with Michael Stryker, where he pioneered a method to image genetically labeled GABAergic neurons in behaving mice, and elucidated the circuit mechanisms of behavioral state-dependent sensory modulation in mouse visual cortex. In 2014, he was awarded the prestigious A*STAR Investigatorship and started his lab in the Singapore Bioimaging Consortium in 2015. The main research interest of his lab is the neural mechanisms of metabolic regulation, currently with a focus on feeding behavior.
Scientists have identified a network of neurons that drives overeating in response to environmental cues,
