Laura Baroncelli graduated in biology from the University of Pisa in 2005 and trained in the Ph.D. program in neurobiology at the Scuola Normale Superiore from 2006 to 2009. Following a fellowship at Scuola Normale Superiore, Baroncelli was awarded in 2010 a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, in Italy. My scientific production during Ph.D. and postdoctoral career was highly fruitful leading to the publication of 26 original research papers in international peer-reviewed journals and 4 reviews. The main subject of my work was the study of cerebral plasticity during development and adulthood, both in wild-type rodents and in animal models of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. In her research, Baroncelli used a multidisciplinary approach that comprised electrophysiological, biochemical, optical, and behavioral techniques. The simultaneous mastery of all these techniques has made it possible to tackle a wide spectrum of problems, approaching each of them from a different perspective in a truly interdisciplinary manner. Baroncelli is Reviewer for various international peer-reviewed journals, including Biological Psychiatry, Cerebral Cortex, Journal of Neuroscience, Scientific Report, European Journal of Neuroscience, Neural Plasticity, International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience, Neurochemistry International, and Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience and Brain stimulation. Baroncelli has been invited to several international conferences focused on cerebral plasticity and metabolic brain pathologies as a speaker. In the framework of the European COST action “Brain Extracellular Matrix in Health and Disease (ECMNET)”, Baroncelli has been member of the local organizing committee of the pre-FENS International Meeting “Brain Extracellular Matrix Targeting in Regeneration and Rehabilitation”, July 2-4, 2014, Volterra (PI).
