Research Summary

In this research group sensitization of primary afferent nociceptors is investigated as one mechanism for chronic pain and neuropathy. We focus on translational studies using single fiber recording techniques in chronic pain patients, human volunteers and large animals (pig) combined with functional and structural investigations of skin innervation in-vivo and in cell-culture.
