Anna Sanchez Avila

PhD student
University of Dundee

Anna Sanchez Avila is a PhD student in Dr. Chris Henstridge’s lab at the University of Dundee. Anna’s research focuses on using high resolution imaging techniques to study synapse loss in the context of motor neurone disease. Synapses are one of the first structures that degenerate in MND. Therefore, understanding how synapse loss occurs, can lead to effective treatments.

Anna studied Biomedical Sciences at the University of Barcelona before moving onto an MSc in Integrative Neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh.
