Published by Britt Knight PhD, Co-Director

I received my PhD in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Connecticut. My doctoral research focused on basic mechanisms in peripheral inflammatory pain biology. After, I completed about two years of postdoctoral research understanding how biomaterials can be used to deliver analgesics for treating musculoskeletal pain. Currently, I am the Program Coordinator for the United States Association for the Study of Pain (USASP) under the larger International organization (IASP).
