Dr Isabella Gavazzi PhD

Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience Education


My main research interest is in the cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling plasticity, remodelling and regeneration of adult neurons, with a particular focus on the study of the mechanisms underlying maintenance of normal connectivity, remodelling and nerve repair after injury in adult somatosensory systems and plasticity of synaptic connections in chronic pain states. Over the past few years I have become interested in pedagogical research, with a particular focus on assessment as a teaching strategy. I am the primary or deputy organiser of a number of modules in the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, as well as the Senior Tutor for the Neuroscience BSc programme.
