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.

OUR TWEETS

I love seeing people wearing masks 😷to protect from #COVID19 but cyclists 🚴‍♀️ wearing masks 😷 and no helmet ⛑? Are other people noticing this trend?

CSR has re-aligned several review groups / study sections. Somatosensory and Pain Systems (SPS) study section is now re-aligned as Neurobiology of Pain and Itch (NPI) study section. Neuroscience of Interoception and Chemosensation (NIC) is another re-aligned study section......

My non-science/medicine husband was about to stand up with flip flops on a SUP and I yelled “take off your flips flops! You don’t have any proprioception with those on” and then he yelled “proprio-what?!” 💦 splash.
