The Neuroimmunology Laboratories are part of the Department of Symptom Research. The laboratories house five well-funded and collaborating principal investigators who share space, equipment and ideas.
The overall aim of the studies performed within these laboratories is to increase our understanding of the pathophysiology of cancer therapy-induced neurobehavioral toxicities, including neuropathic pain, depressed mood, cognitive dysfunction and fatigue. We then apply this newly-acquired knowledge to the rational design of novel interventions for alleviating symptom burden in patients with cancer.
The Neuroimmunology Laboratories provide a highly interactive, collaborative, international and research-focused environment.
