I graduated with a PhD from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. I was then awarded a Rothschild Postdoctoral Fellowship and worked on the role of T cells in neuropathic pain at The University of Cincinnati Medical Centre (USA). I then moved to the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney Australia, where I was awarded the UNSW Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship, followed by the NSW Office of Science and Medical Research (OSMR) Career Development Fellowship under the NSW Spinal Cord Injury and Related Neurological Conditions Research Grants Program.
