Laura Baroncelli

Institute of Neuroscience CNR, Italy


I graduated in Biology from the University of Pisa in 2005 and
 trained in the PhD program in Neurobiology at the Scuola Normale Superiore from 2006 to 2009. Following a fellowship at Scuola Normale Superiore, I was awarded in 2010 a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, in Italy. My scientific production during PhD 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 my research I used a multidisciplinary approach that comprised electrophysiological, biochemical, optical and behavioral techniques. The simultaneous mastery of all these techniques has made possible to tackle a wide spectrum of problems, approaching each of them from a different perspective in a truly interdisciplinary manner. I am 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, Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience and Brain stimulation. I have 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)”, I have 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).
