I lead the Denk lab, which studies the peripheral nervous system and its involvement in chronic pain conditions. My group is particularly interested in why pain persists over long periods of time and is exploring the role of neuroimmune interactions and epigenetic mechanisms in this context. Our favourite tools include flow cytometry, cell sorting (FACS, MACS), chromatin analysis methods (ChIP, ATAC, Cut&Run), and RNA sequencing. I am also Co-Director of a Wellcome Trust PhD Training Scheme in Neuroimmune Interactions. We are looking to promote interdisciplinary research in an open, positive research environment. My group and I enjoy sharing data, and we engage with other researchers and the public on a regular basis. So please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
