The Center of Biomedical 研究 Excellence for the Study of Pain and Sensory Function
成立于2012年, the Center of Biomedical 研究 Excellence for the Study of Pain and Sensory Function (图) supports a vibrant and collaborative neuroscience research program at 新宝体育官网APP下载. The goal of the center is to increase the scientific understanding of the neurobiology of chronic pain, facilitating the discovery and development of novel therapies.
Through funding from the National Institute of General Medical 科学s*, the center continues to expand and diversify in exciting ways — recruiting neuroscience faculty to 新宝体育官网APP下载, 支持 神经科学研究人员, and launching the research programs of junior faculty via our 试点项目计划.
The center also supports two state-of-the-art research facilities — the 行为的核心 和 组织学和影像核心 — which provide expertise, training, and instrumentation to perform cutting-edge research.
