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

@pradiptaray's new work is now online @biorxiv_neursci https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.11.27.470190v1 with coauthors @sshiers1 @dianatavf @ish1789 @mike_doc_B
To my knowledge, this is the largest transcriptomic study of human neuropathic pain DRGs to date with more than 50 samples analyzed

Anterograde transsynaptic tracing!

Awesome work @jschoggins and team.
Neuroscience thanks you 🤓

Interested in animal pain models + measures? Check out this new @NatRevNeurosci review from @JeffreyMogil, @Dr_CherylStucky and me! We examined @PAINthejournal papers to determine if/how preclinical practices in pain research have changed over the years! https://www.nature.com/articles/s41583-021-00536-7
