Biography

A major interest in my lab is to use microfluidic cultures to grow neurons responsible for the transmission of pain signals, in a way that closely mimics their functionality in the body. We believe that using such sophisticated organ-in-a-dish models, will help to unravel the mechanisms of pathological pain, and eventually reduce the number of animals used in biomedical research. ‘Pain-in-a-dish', is a microfluidic culture model of peripheral pain system developed in my lab is now being widely applied to research into molecular mechanisms of peripheral pain.
