About the Speaker(s)

Dr. Ingram’s research has largely focused on opioid and cannabinoid receptor modulation of pain circuits, and her laboratory has had continuous funding from NIDA since 2003. Her current research focuses on synaptic plasticity associated with inflammation, especially the endocannabinoid system in the descending pain modulatory circuit.

“Our goal is to understand these pain pathways and functional selectivity of opioid agonists so that we can develop novel drugs that target pain without triggering dependence and addiction.” – Susan Ingram, PhD

Ingram has published more than 72 peer-reviewed primary research articles and reviews, the vast majority related to mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in the descending pain modulatory system associated with opioid tolerance and dependence.
