I lead the Bannister lab group, where we focus on the biological, pharmacological and anatomical basis of pain pathways and their plasticity in chronic pain states. Chronic pain affects up to 20% of the adult population and can occur in the presence or absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage. Modules that I teach on include Physiology and Pharmacology of the Central Nervous System, Pharmacology of Neurological and Psychiatric Disorders, Core Year One Fundamentals of Pharmacology, and Neuroscience. My lab's research is funded by the Academy of Medical Sciences and the NC3Rs.
