Research

Pain management is currently a major medical problem due to the current analgesics’ efficacy and risk of dependency. Investigating the relationship between pain and diet leads to the potential discovery of novel treatments and prevention of chronic pain. Current studies have suggested increased dietary omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids leads to increased thermal hyperalgesia and mechanical allodynia. My current research is to investigate the mechanism of spontaneous allodynia in increased dietary omega-6 mice models.
