Both as a physician and as a scientist my focus is to understand the mechanisms critical for pain to alleviate the suffering of patients who are afflicted by therapy-refractory pain. I focus on trigeminal and other cranial nerve (glossopharyngeal) pain disorders. As a laboratory-based scientist I maintain a research agenda in sync with my clinical focus taking advantage of methodology from molecular biology physiology and biomedical engineering. In my laboratory I intend to understand how calcium influx regulates pain. This applies to both physiological pain which is a healthy mechanism that has given our species a survival advantage and to pathological pain which can torment patients.
