Neural Circuits of Itch and Pain
Friday, 7 August | 14:50–15:15
Sarah Ross, PhD is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, USA. Her lab combines molecular genetic, electrophysiological and behavioural approaches to investigate the neural circuits of pain and itch. These efforts involve generating genetically modified mice that enable the visualization and manipulation of genetically-defined populations of neurons with the goal of understanding how these cells contribute to nociceptive processing.
