About the Lab

Our laboratory investigates the mechanisms through which inflammation or injury produces changes in the peripheral nerves, spinal cord, and brain, leading to a transition from acute pain to chronic pain. We explore innovative ideas using state-of-the art techniques to better understand the molecular neurobiology of pain sensitization and opioid dependence, and thus contribute to new pharmacotherapeutic approaches to the development of analgesic drugs.
