Beatrice Mihaela Radu is Research Associate at the Department of Neurological and Movement Sciences, University of Verona, Italy and Lecturer at the Department of Anatomy, Animal Physiology and Biophysics, University of Bucharest, Romania. She is currently living in Verona, Italy where she is involved in several research projects. Dr. Radu is a Editorial Board member of Journal of Neurology and Stroke (MedCrave), American Journal of Life Sciences, American Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience (Science PG), Frontiers of Biological and Life Sciences, Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuroscience (Sciknow), Advisory Board member of Neuroscience Research Letters (BioInfo), and member of the International Brain Research Organization, International Society for Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism, International Society of Neurochemistry, International Association for the Study of Pain, American Society of Cell Biology, European Association for the Study of Diabetes.
Dr. Beatrice Mihaela Radu has graduated from University of Bucharest, Faculty of Physics in 2001, where she had then her Masters in Neurobiology (2003) and Ph.D in Biology (2005) degrees. Her research interest is in the field of epilepsy, pain and neuropathic pain, investigated on animal models by means of electrophysiological techniques. She had long-term trainings in prestigious European laboratories from the INSERM (Paris), Cajal Institute (Madrid), University of Verona (Verona) and University of Bucharest (University of Bucharest). She lectures at the Master of Neurobiology at the University of Bucharest providing training to postgraduates in basic and advances techniques used in neurosciences.In the last 10 years, she dedicated her research to uncover the molecular mechanisms of diabetic neuropathy in type 1 diabetic mouse models, with a special focus on sensory neurons from dorsal root ganglia. In the last 3 years, she started to explore the role of brain microvascular endothelium in epileptogenesis. She is author of multiple articles in peer-reviewed journals.
