About New York University
At the NYU Cancer Pain Laboratory, our research scientists study cancer at the cellular, molecular, and pharmacological level. Their research discoveries are the catalysts for innovative therapies and treatment plans that directly benefit our patients.
With the goal of alleviating oral cancer pain and suffering, our researchers tackle the challenge from many different perspectives. They develop new drugs to ease symptoms. They conduct basic scientific studies to understand how cancers develop and progress. They investigate genomic subtleties in cancers to glean a more nuanced understanding of the pain-producing mechanisms initiated by the cancer. And they amass preclinical data on mechanism-based therapies for use in clinical trials.
