Dr. Antonia Marin Burgin

PhD in Biological Sciences, University of Buenos Aires (2000). Research internship at the Institute of Physiology, University of Wuerzburg, Germany (1999-2001).

Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California San Diego, USA (2002-2008). In 2009 she returned to Argentina with a position as Researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET), where she worked at the Laboratory of Neuronal Plasticity at the Leloir Institute (2009-2012). In 2013 she joined the IBIOBA-MPSP as a leader of the Neuronal Circuits Research Group.
