Expanding and enhancing our research is one of our top priorities at Yale Medicine.
Among the basic science topics we are actively pursuing are neurobiology to understand the perception of pain, touch and itch. Research in this area spans the gamut from preclinical, to fundamental molecular approaches looking at the gene expression patterns of single neurons that are involved in sensation. This research program complements a variety of other research programs in neurobiology at Yale having to do with the central nervous system.
We also conduct clinical research to develop innovative approaches to anesthesia and pain management.
