Allan Basbaum, neurobiologist
Translating the neurobiology of pain to chronic pain management: What does the crystal ball say?

Allan Basbaum’s research addresses the molecular mechanisms that underlie the generation of persistent pain after tissue or nerve injury. Most recently, his laboratory has focused on novel approaches to overcoming the neurological consequences of peripheral nerve damage, by transplanting embryonic cortical inhibitory precursor cells into the spinal cord. He has served as Treasurer of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) and as Editor-in-Chief of PAIN, the journal of the IASP. Recently, he was appointed Co-Chair of the Steering committee of the Intergovernmental Pain Research Coordinating Committee (IPRCC). He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine and is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the Royal Society in the United Kingdom.
