Webinar: Mapping Neuronal Gene Expression to Understand Pain
Ted Price, PhD
Diana Tavares-Ferreira, PhD
Stephanie Shiers, PhD
The human dorsal root ganglion (DRG) is the site of many sensory neurons, including pain-sensing neurons called nociceptors. Therefore, studying the DRG is important for understanding pain responses—especially chronic pain development. Researchers can characterize the DRG by mapping gene expression in its cells. In this webinar brought to you by ACD – a BioTechne brand, Ted Price, Diana Tavares-Ferreira, and Stephanie Shiers will discuss mapping the DRG to identify different neuronal subtypes, thereby aiding target identification and drug discovery with the ultimate goal of developing non-opioid painkillers.
