A primary aim of the 图 is to increase the number of neuroscience investigators at 澳客网官网首页 and to build a research community that will sustain a vibrant and competitive research center. 作为这个目标的一部分, the 图 funds the research efforts of talented and innovative investigators leading projects related to pain and sensory function.

The goal of this funding is to provide these investigators with the support necessary to develop their novel research projects to the point where each can be independently funded with its own separate federal grant. 迄今为止,四名调查人员已收到 独立的资金.

图项目负责人

迈克尔·伯尔曼博士.D., associate professor of Psychology, 文理学院

Project Title: Painful neonatal trauma alters subsequent fear and sensory function via changes in amygdalar CRF function

迈克尔·伯尔曼博士.D, tests the hypothesis that neonatal trauma alters the development of a subset of neurons in the amygdala, which can put an individual at increased risk later in life for a variety of conditions such as anxiety disorders, 创伤后应激障碍, 抑郁症, 还有慢性疼痛.

戴安娜J. 古德,Ph值.D, assistant professor, Department of Biomedical 科学s, College of 整骨疗法的医学 

Project Title: Novel expression of MHC class II on DRG neurons can directly activate CD4+ T cells contributing to the resolution of neuropathic pain.

戴安娜·古德博士.D., 项目将检验这个假设, that sensory neurons expressing MHC II can activate CD4+ T cells to stimulate the paracrine release of anti-inflammatory cytokines.

以前的项目负责人

曹玲,M.D., Ph.D., professor, Department of Biomedical 科学s, College of 整骨疗法的医学

Project Title: Interaction between calcitonin-gene-related-peptide and CD40 on CNS glial cells in neuropathic pain

曹玲,M.D., Ph.D., studies the interaction between the immune system and the nervous system, exploring the impact of immune cells on pain stemming from nerve injury.

Received R01 Grant July 2016 and Graduated from the 图

杰弗里·甘特博士.D., professor, School of Biological 科学s, 文理学院

Project Title: Genes involved in antinociception in 黑腹果蝇

杰弗里·甘特博士.D., 对果蝇进行全基因组筛选, 黑腹果蝇, to identify novel genes involved in perception of noxious stimuli.

2015年9月获得R15资助

塔玛拉·金博士.D., professor, Department of Biomedical 科学s, College of 整骨疗法的医学 

Project Title: The role of spinal disinhibition in cancer-induced bone pain

塔玛拉·金博士.D., will examine neural mechanisms underlying cancer bone pain, focusing on the role of altered signaling by inhibitory interneurons within the spinal cord in mediating cancer bone pain. Understanding the role of disinhibition in cancer-induced bone pain will reveal potential novel targets for the development of alternative non-opioid therapies for breakthrough pain.

Promoted to 行为的核心 Director June 2021

雷磊,博士.D., associate professor, School of Biological 科学s, 文理学院

Project Title: Function of the transcription factor Sox11 in regulating the plasticity of nociceptive neurons after nerve injury

雷磊,博士.D., studies the development of nociceptive neurons, with a particular focus on the transcription factors regulating the plasticity of these neurons following peripheral nerve injury.

Co-collaborator on R01 Grant and Graduated from the 图 in July 2016

本杰明·哈里森博士.D., assistant professor, Department of Biomedical 科学s, College of 整骨疗法的医学 

Project Title: Genetic control of nociceptor anatomical plasticity in the adult peripheral nervous system

本杰明·哈里森博士.D., studies the mechanisms of neuron growth. His 图 project is geared to understand how RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) regulate the growth of pain receptors.

在2022年4月获得R01拨款

克里斯托弗·斯特劳布博士.D., assistant professor, Department of Biomedical 科学s, College of 整骨疗法的医学

Project Title: Oxytocin signaling in nucleus accumbens GABAergic interneurons in chronic pain

克里斯托弗·斯特劳布博士.D., will characterize oxytocin signaling in nucleus accumbens GABAergic interneurons ex vitro. The study will also examine the activity of NAc GABAergic interneurons in chronic pain in behaving animals.
