Allison Barry

BSc MSc DPhil

Academic Visitor

pain neurobiology, transcriptomics, bioinformatics


I have a background in sensory physiology and bioinformatics. I did my DPhil at the University of Oxford with Prof. David Bennett and Dr. Georgios Baskozos, looking at the molecular profiling of murine primary afferents in neuropathic pain. I currently split my time with the University of Vienna and University of Texas, Dallas using multi-omic methods to understand pain pathophysiology.

Through Oxford, this research focus translates to studying the molecular profiling of DRG neurons and iPSC derived nociceptors across pai​nful conditions and model systems. Processed sequencing data can be found on our database (DRG Directory).
