CIPDD researchers have extensive experience in establishing, refining and characterising rodent pain models using a range of in vivo methods (behaviour and imaging, the latter in collaboration with scientists at the UQ Centre for Advanced Imaging), and ex vivo techniques including histology,immunohistochemistry, ELISA/multiplexed ELISA, and molecular biology (Western Blot, qPCR).  These skills are applied to the following specific research programs:

Pain and Analgesic Efficacy Profiling

Collaborative Clinical Pharmacology Research
