Christoph Treiber, ERC Awardee and Group Leader, Oxford University. Christoph was the first Masters student to join the Keays lab in 2008. As a diploma student he showed that clusters of iron-rich cells in the upper beak of pigeons are macrophages not magnetosensitive neurons. Christoph undertook a doctorate at Oxford University with Professor Scott Waddel, where he worked on transposal elements and behavioural variation in Drosophila. In 2022 he was awarded an ERC grant and started his own lab in Oxford. See Treiber et al, Nature, 2012.
