Tawfik Laboratory

Rigorous science done by passionate people

Our Mission

Our mission is to do the best clinically-informed basic science to advance our understanding of the neuroimmune contribution to chronic pain in a thoughtful manner with our patients always in mind.

In order to further understand the mechanisms that contribute to the transition from acute to chronic pain, we use a variety of approaches that span behavioral to cellular. We are particularly excited about techniques that can be translated to humans including live animal imaging and whole cell mass cytometry.
