Research Interest
The Saloman Lab uses both in vitro and in vivo animal models as well as clinical samples to conduct anatomical, behavioral, optogenetic, Ca2+ Imaging, and cell/molecular studies to investigate the role of the nervous system in regulating homeostasis as well as pathological conditions, including visceral pain and tumorigenesis. Currently, we are investigating the contributions of nociceptive versus neuropathic pain mechanisms to chronic pancreatitis pain. Cancer neuroscience is an emerging field and we are focused on how neuro-immune interactions regulate tumorigenesis.
