MOLECULAR MECHANISM OF PAIN
Working with Dr. Theodore Price at UT Dallas and Dr. Angelo Lepore at TJU, we are examining novel mechanisms that regulate neuropathic pain and pain plasticity.
Our work focuses on a new type of extracellular interaction mediated by phosphorylation of EphB2 that is necessary and sufficient for the direct interaction between the NMDA-type glutamate receptor and the receptor tyrosine kinase EphB2.
Our current work builds on studies published in 2017 (Hanamura at el., PlosBiology 2017).
