Jarred Younger
Assistant Professor of Anesthesia

The focus of my research interests is on discovering mechanisms and treatments of chronic pain. Under training grants from the Arthritis Foundation and  National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), I am studying opioid systems in chronic pain patients. My approach is to investigate these difficult chronic pain problems with pharmacological, psychological, neuroimaging, physiological, and genetic perspectives. I am particularly interested in the role opioid-peptides play in complex pain disorders.
