Andrea Nistri heads a large research group investigating the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurotransmission and neuromodulation using various models of neurological diseases. His experience in migraine pain research was developed through a long collaboration with LUMC aimed at discovering novel structural and functional properties of pain receptor mechanisms in trigeminal ganglia of transgenic mouse models of migraine. In addition, he has many (inter)national collaborations on many aspects of neuroscience, including unravelling basic pain mechanisms.
