Cell based models to help identify potential new analgesics. Research focussing on elucidating the key molecular mechanisms by which fatty acid metabolites or lipids signal to ion channel proteins involved in pain detection in sensory neurons, that is, the chemical pathways by which the body feels pain. The overall aim of the project is to identify new targets for the generation of pain relief drugs using cell based models.
