Areas of Research
By combining diverse techniques, including molecular biology, RNAscope in human sample biopsies, genetically modified mice, chemogenetics, and behavioral analysis in clinically relevant mouse models of pathological pain, we investigate the signaling pathways that mediate pain or promote its resolution. The goal of our research is to make discoveries on novel pain biomarkers and signal transducers that contribute to pain chronification and could be targeted for treatments. Our lab also uses interdisciplinary approaches in germ free and gnotobiotic mouse models to uncover the role of bacteria and their metabolites in pain sensitivity.
