Elisa Galliano PhD

About me

Dr Elisa Galliano trained in Italy at the University of Pavia (BSc Biology, MSc Neurobiology) and completed her PhD in neuroscience at the Erasmus University, Rotterdam in the Netherlands. After securing funding from the Wellcome Trust, she divided her time between London (King’s College) and the US (Harvard University) for her postdoctoral studies. In 2018 she opened her own laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Her research focuses on the way in which brain cells alter their shape and function in response to different environmental stimuli, and on how such changes at the cellular level impact overall network computation and behaviour.
