Interests

My research interests lie in the identification and understanding of genetic alterations which affect pain sensation in humans. This work is highly translational; working with clinicians to define populations with tightly phenotyped pain conditions, undertaking genetic analysis to identify new pain targets and elucidating the effects of the variants identified at a cellular level. It is my hope that this research will help deliver a deeper understanding of the mechanisms driving chronic pain and define new targets for the development of novel analgesic medicines.
