The Center of Biomedical 研究 Excellence for the Study of Pain and Sensory Function

成立于2012年, the Center of Biomedical 研究 Excellence for the Study of Pain and Sensory Function (图) supports a vibrant and collaborative neuroscience research program at UNE. The goal of the center is to increase the scientific understanding of the neurobiology of chronic pain, facilitating the discovery and development of novel therapies.

Through funding from the National Institute of General Medical 科学s*, the center continues to expand and diversify in exciting ways: recruiting neuroscience faculty to UNE, 支持 神经科学研究人员, and launching the research programs of junior faculty via our 试点项目.

The center also supports two state-of-the-art research facilities — the 行为的核心 和 组织学与影像学核心 — which provide expertise, training, and instrumentation to perform cutting-edge research.

If you would like to schedule time at one of our core facilities, or if you have any questions about engaging with the center, 请联系 珍妮弗·马龙,米.S., M.P.H., 图项目协调员 or (207) 602-2517.

  1. Create a critical mass of neuroscience researchers necessary to sustain a vibrant and competitive research center. The center supports promising junior scientists, administers a pilot project grant program to fund additional neuroscience projects, and provides start-up funds for the recruitment of new faculty.
  2. Expand UNE’s neuroscience research infrastructure, providing core facilities that allow investigators to carry out cutting-edge research. 两个核心设施, the 行为的核心 和 组织学与影像学核心, provide researchers access to specialized instrumentation and equipment, as well as the training and expertise needed to use it.
