Alex Deftu finished his PhD at the University of Bucharest where he studied ion channels in DRG neurons and microglial cells using calcium imaging and electrophysiology. In 2014 he spent one year of his PhD program in Isabelle Décosterd`s lab during which he investigated potassium channels in spinal cord microglial cells after the SNI pain model and from May 2019 he rejoined the group to further investigate the mechanisms of neuropathic pain at the spinal cord level.
