Dr Charlotte Ermine obtained her PhD in 2016 from the University of Melbourne. She worked under the supervision of Dr Lachlan Thompson at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, on the potential of brain regeneration after injury. She focused on the mechanisms regulating adult neurogenesis in rodent models of injury.
In early 2017, she started a postdoctoral position in the Dementia Research Team Grant led by A/Prof Amy Brodtmann, working on the evolution of rat brain volume and cognition up to 12 months following focal cortical ischemia.
She has recently started a collaboration with Prof Mark Parsons and Dr Andrew Bivard from the Royal Melbourne Hospital, working on a rodent model of Transient Ischemic Attack.
