We are studying the complex mechanisms that underlie the experience of pain with the hope that a better understanding can lead to more successful methods of control and treatment. Our research into the diversity of pain phenomena adopts a multidisciplinary approach; it incorporates novel imaging techniques and electrophysiological, histological and behavioral experiments, to study pain-related mechanisms at the molecular and cellular level, as well as the level of neuronal networks and behavior. It is anticipated that this integrative approach will yield a fundamental understanding of the multidimensional mechanisms involved in the unremitting suffering of pain experienced by so many people. New targets for the treatment of pain will be identified and lead to the development of new pain-specific anesthetic drugs which could eliminate the sensation of pain much more effectively than currently available painkillers.
ENU day 2017 is coming!
We are excited to host this year's ENU day on March 29, 2017, at ELSC. The conference will focus on our community's scientific work, and will allow us to share our recent professional insights and experiences.
