University of Illinois at Chicago awarded $4.6 million NIH grant for chronic pain research
The University of Illinois at Chicago has been awarded a $4.6 million grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to study the molecular neurobiology of chronic pain in patients with sickle cell disease and to develop potential new drug treatments.
While there have been many advances in managing the disease and acute pain crises, researchers still do not know much about how and why patients experience chronic pain.
The new funding will provide an opportunity for investigators to refine their tools and develop new therapeutic leads for treating chronic pain in sickle cell disease. They hope to identify various molecular mechanisms and explore ways to target one or more of these mechanisms for controlling pain in sickle cell disease.
