Alba Guijarro Belmar

Research Fellow

Alba completed her PhD in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Aberdeen in 2019 where she worked on biomaterial-based combinatorial approach to promote axon regeneration and functional locomotor recovery after spinal cord injury using relevant in vitroex vivo and animal models. 

Alba is a Research Fellow working jointly with the Murray Lab at the SWC and the Brownstone lab at the Institute of Neurology. Her project is focused on developing new viral constructs for the efficient infection of spinal neurons, as well as assaying the effect of different genes on motor activity, both in vitro and in vivo.
