Somatosensory (pain, touch) development, function, and behavior. Chronic and neuropathic pain.
Join us!

Normal pain is essential to navigate a dangerous world – aberrant pain is debilitating. The Keeler lab explores how peripheral pain neurons, called nociceptors, develop and function in healthy and dysfunctional systems. We will use innovative tools, including a novel multiplexed neural activity imaging platform and a rapid, cheap surgical method to generate genetic mouse models of human pain conditions, to learn about pain neurons and their systems.
