WEBINAR | Sickle Cell Disease Pain Mechanisms: From Mice to Humans
June 18, 2020
Pain is the chief morbidity that severely decreases the quality of life of patients who suffer from sickle cell disease (SCD). These patients experience acute pain which may result from peripheral vaso-occlusion, tissue ischemia and inflammation. Many also suffer from chronic pain that may result from chronic inflammation and dysregulated neuronal firing and connectivity within the peripheral and central nervous system. Dr. Cheryl Stucky, Director of the Neuroscience Doctoral Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin, will discuss the work her laboratory has done to interrogate the peripheral mechanisms underlying sickle cell pain by using rodent models of SCD in combination with electrophysiological, cellular and behavioral assays. She will also discuss her work with Dr. Amanda Brandow, Associate Professor at Medical College of Wisconsin, to investigate phenotypes and mechanisms of pain in patients with sickle cell disease.
WEBINAR | Chronic Low Back Pain & Epigenetics: Perspectives from Human & Animal Studies
June 23, 2020
Join AnaBios for our latest pain research webinar, presented by Dr. Laura Stone, associate professor at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. Dr. Stone will present findings on low back pain that involve both human and animal models. She’ll discuss dysregulation of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and immune mediators in human cerebrospinal fluid and intervertebral discs obtained from patients vs. controls. She’ll also explore proof-of-concept studies targeting these mechanisms in a pre-clinical model of low back pain, and will present human and animal study data implicating epigenetic mechanisms in chronic pain. The challenges and rewards of translational research will be highlighted throughout the presentation.
Dr. Stone received her PhD in neuroscience at the University of Minnesota in 1999. As a post-doctoral trainee at the Oregon Health and Sciences University, she was the first recipient of the John J. Bonica Post-Doctoral Training Fellowship from the International Association for the Study of Pain. In 2007, she joined the faculty at McGill University; most recently, she returned to the University of Minnesota as a professor of anesthesiology. She is an inventor on seven patents, has received funding from both the National Institutes of Health and the Canadian Institutes for Health Research and has co-authored more than 70 manuscripts.
