Alban Latremoliere

Johns Hopkins University, USA

Alban Latremoliere is an Assistant Professor in the departments of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University (MD, USA). He graduated in Neuroscience from the University Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris, France) and performed his postdoctoral training at the F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School (MA, USA) working on neuropathic pain in rodents. Dr. Latremoliere’s laboratory focuses on the neurobiology of sensory systems, with an emphasis on pain and regeneration. The main areas of research are: 1) Assess ongoing pain in rodent models of neuropathic pain in vivo and determine the cellular mechanisms involved, 2) Understand the relationship between reinnervation of target tissue after peripheral nerve regeneration and functional recovery/pain sensitivity and 3) Determine how acute and chronic pain alter sleep architecture and the neural circuits responsible.
