Brain Development and Disease
Research center
Ilaria Colombi graduated in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Genova (Italy) in September 2012, with a thesis about Effects of antiepileptic drugs on hippocampal neurons coupled to micro-electrode arrays.In March 2015, she got the Master Degree in Bioengineering (110/110, with worthiness of publication), at the University of Genova, with a thesis about circadian rhythm monitoring and manipulation in neural assemblies. She obtained her PhD in Neuroscience in February 2018 under the supervision of Dr. Michela Chiappalone at the Italian Institute of Technology . She currently has a Post-Doctoral fellow position in Brain Development and Disease group lead by Dr. Laura Cancedda. Her research interests include neuropharmacological experiments using Micro Electrode Arrays (MEAs) in healthy and pathological in vitro neuronal models (i.e. cell cultures and brain slices) and the development of algorithms for multichannel data analysis.
