Elisa Galliano

Elisa Galliano

Visiting Scientist



Biography:

Elisa trained at the University of Pavia (BSc Biology, MSc Neurobiology) with Egidio D’Angelo as a cellular electrophysiologist, where her first principal interest has been investigating the cerebellar computation at a cellular and synaptic level. For her graduate studies she then moved to the De Zeeuw laboratory in Rotterdam where under the supervision of Freek Hoebeek she received a complete training in cellular, system and behavioural neuroscience.

Thanks to a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship Elisa will spend the coming four years investigating experience-driven plasticity in bulbar dopaminergic interneurons and the effects of such plastic modifications on the first synapse in olfaction and on olfactory behavior under the mentorship of Prof. Gordon Shepherd (Yale). While being mostly based at King’s College London in Matthew Grubb's lab, she will spend some time in the Murthy (Harvard) and Lledo (Pasteur) laboratories to tackle the different parts of her project.
