Cytokine Regulation Of Inflammatory Pain
Grant number: 1043147 | Funding period: 2013 - 2015
What drives the pain associated with inflammation is unknown as is the relationship between pain and the extent of tissue damage associated with disease, for example, arthritis. Our laboratory has shown that a particular protein is a key mediator of inflammatory pain. The project is to understand how this particular protein promotes pain, including how it sensitzes neurons.
