Reza Sharif-Naeini


Department:   Physiology

Appointments:  Assistant Professor, FRQS Chercheur-Boursier Junior I

Research:  Dr. Sharif’s lab is interested in understanding the molecular bases of mechanotransduction, and the role of mechanosensory neurons in normal and pathological pain transmission. There are three main themes: 1) the identification of the genes encoding mechanosensitive ion channels (MSCs) in mammals. 2) Defining the role of MSCs in physiology and pathophysiological conditions 3) Defining the neuronal circuits in the spinal cord and how changes in the function of these networks changes in the setting of chronic pain.
