The laboratory will be moving to The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL) in August 2020! We will be at Campus Biotech in Geneva. We will continue to integrate motor learning, artificial intelligence, & neurological disease-focused research with the generous support of the Bertarelli Foundation. Prof. Mackenzie Mathis was appointed as the Bertarelli Foundation Chair of Integrative Neuroscience.


June 2019: Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine covered work in our lab!

DeepLabCut 2.0 is published in Nature Protocols! Congratulations to Tanmay, Alex, Mackenzie & co-authors. Full python package, GUIs, 3D tools and more: Plus, our team got the cover!

“A running cheetah with DeepLabCut Image of a cheetah ‘in the wild’ with markerless tracking of user-defined parts made with DeepLabCut, an open-source toolbox for deep-learning-based animal-pose estimation provided by Nath et al.”

Jan 2019: We hosted a DeepLabCut workshop! Scientists from across the US, CAN & UK joined us for a hands-on tutorial on how to use the deep learning toolbox.

Kai Sandbrink (masters student) joins the lab!

Nov 2018: A new preprint on using DeepLabCut is posted, Congrats to Tanmay & Alexander!

Our work on extensions to DeepLabCut was accepted to Cosyne 2019, and Alex’s Team presentation on “deep learning in motor neuroscience” is accepted to NCM 2019!

Sept 2018: Adrian receives his master’s degree! Congrats, Adrian! We wish you the best in Zurich!

August 2018: Our work on building the DeepLabCut toolbox, a deep learning method to perform markerless pose estimation was published in Nature Neuroscience, congrats to Alexander Mathis and co-authors!:
