Sarah Falk


Sarah is currently a PostDoc at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. Her work focuses on different molecular mechanism involved in driving and maintaining cancer pain. Using different in vivo models of cancer-induced bone pain, she combines behavior assessment, real time imagining, in vivo electrophysiology and ex vivo analysis of bone and tumor tissue, to study the role of peripheral and central mechanism on the progression of cancer pain.

Sarah holds a PhD degree in Health and Medical Sciences from the University of Copenhagen, and M.Sc. in Molecular Biomedicine, an elite program appointed by the Danish Ministry of Science and Technology and part of Copenhagen’s Master of Excellence (COME) program.
