Project summary

Liam is a neuroscientist who is interested in the fundamental mechanisms of nociception and pain. He uses advanced optical and genetic tools with electrophysiology to address how stimuli are encoded and processed by the spinal cord. During this Fellowship he aims to establish how specific cells guide protective behaviours and examine how these processes are transformed in disease.
