Prof. Dr. Ana-Maria Zăgrean

Ana-Maria Zăgrean, MD, PhD Habil., is Professor in the Physiology and Neuroscience Division at the “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest. Her studies are focused on brain responses to hypoxia/ischemia and reperfusion and to altered states of excitability, in immature and mature brain, in in vivo (global cerebral ischemia, perinatal asphyxia, experimental epilepsy) and in vitro (oxygen-glucose deprivation) experimental paradigms. She investigated epigenetic, biochemical, electrophysiological and behavioral aspects of brain response to various metabolic and environmental stressors, looking towards brain recovery and neuroprotective strategies.

Ana-Maria Zăgrean is a founding member and the current Secretary of the National Neuroscience Society of Romania (SNN):
