Transition of Acute Pain to Chronic Pain

Bradley K. Taylor, PhD

Dr. Taylor’s laboratory investigates the mechanisms through which inflammation or injury produces changes in the peripheral nerves, spinal cord, and brain, leading to a transition from acute pain to chronic pain. They explore innovative ideas using state-of-the art techniques to better understand the molecular neurobiology of pain sensitization and opioid dependence, and thus contribute to new pharmacotherapeutic approaches to the development of safe and efficacious analgesic drugs.
