Personal profile


Dr Bianca Jupp is a Research Fellow in the Department of Neuroscience in the Central Clinical School. She completed her PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne (2008), followed by postdoctoral training at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health (2008-2011) and the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge, UK (2011-2019) where she held Fellowships from the NHMRC, AXA Research Fund and Newton Trust.

Dr Jupp’s research primarily investigates the neural mechanisms underlying addiction and addiction vulnerability with a particular emphasis on behavioural traits known to mediate risk for this disorder, such as impulsivity and cognitive flexibility. As part of this work, Dr Jupp has developed an interest and expertise in the application of pre-clinical neuroimaging, specifically PET and MRI, to investigate individual differences in behaviour and treatment response in rodent models, with a focus on the translational utility of these approaches.
