After obtaining a BSc in Biology, Dr. Barbara Lind completed her PhD (Fast astrocytic Ca2+ responses in neurovascular coupling, Subcellular astrocytic Ca2+ activity reflects neuronal activation and precedes blood flow responses during somatosensory stimulation in vivo) and MSc (A study of the mechanisms that leads from NMDA excitotoxic stimulation to pronounced lesion formation in mouse cortex) at the University of Copenhagen, and under the supervision of Professor M.D. Gitte Moos Knudsen at the University of Copenhagen and Professor M.D. Ph.D. Maiken Nedergaard at the University of Rochester.  She is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the University of Copenhagen, and previously held postdoctoral positions in the laboratories of Professor Ph.D. Andrea Volterra at the University of Lausanne and Professor M.D. Ph.D. Martin Lauritzen at the University of Copenhagen.  In recent years she has worked on a project on astrocytic responses and blood flow regulation in the cortex of mice with chronically implanted cranial windows.
