All welcome

Research in the Smith Lab is focused on understanding more about the molecular mechanisms by which stimuli activate neurones and the neuronal circuitry of behaviour. To this end, our research has two overarching aims:

1) To elucidate mechanisms by which acid activates pain-sensing neurones (nociceptors) in inflammation

2) To leverage the unusual phenotypes of the naked mole-rat (e.g. cancer-resistance, longevity, hypoxia/hypercapnia resistant and poikilothermy) to discover more about normal physiology in other mammals.
