This Le Pub will be ALL about nerves. The physiology of nerves and how things can go wrong if something gets on your nerves…quite literally

About this Event

Le Pub Scientifique is delighted to welcome Annina Schmid to present an evening ALL about nerves.

Annina will be discussing some of the real nitty gritty physiology of nerves and how things can go wrong if something gets on your nerves…quite literally. She'll take a close look at entrapment neuropathies, which is what dominates Annina's research-life, and she will also try and convince you that nerdy pathophysiology is not only exciting but also has important implications for clinical practice. The evening will be a balance of fascinating basic science and thrilling clinical work.

Lots of nervy questions are very much encouraged!

Annina Schmid

Annina is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and an Associate Professor in Neuroscience at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences at Oxford University in the UK. She qualified as a Physiotherapist in Switzerland in 2001 and obtained a Master in Manipulative Physiotherapy from Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Australia before completing a PhD in Neuroscience at The University of Queensland in Brisbane in 2011.

Annina’s research includes an exciting and unique combination of preclinical and clinical science which is aimed to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of neuropathic pain and entrapment neuropathies to ultimately improve management of these patients. Annina has presented her work at leading international and national conferences and has published her work widely including publications in leading clinical (e.g., Brain, Nature Communication, Eur J Pain) and basic science journals (e.g., eLife, Nature Genetics). Dr Schmid’s research contribution is recognised by the award of several grants, awards and competitive fellowships including the prestigious early career grant from the International Association for the Study of Pain.

In addition to her research activities, Annina teaches postgraduate courses related to pain and neuroscience internationally. She also maintains a weekly caseload as a specialist musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. Further information can be found at www.neuro-research.ch.
