Professor/Department Chair

Our lab studies the molecular biology of sensory transduction and neurotransmitter action in the mammalian nervous system. One of our goals is to understand the molecular basis of pain sensation and to identify molecules that detect and transmit pain-producing stimuli under normal (acute) and pathophysiological (chronic) conditions.
