Lab Facilities

In November 2013, Pain Research moved to its new state-of-the-art facility located at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.  The new facility includes approximately 6,000 square feet of dedicated laboratory and office space.  The new Pain Labs have been designed and built to support the operational philosophy that is the cornerstone of the Pain Lab's multidisciplinary research programs.  The labs are open and spacious, with specific assignments to Principal Investigators. The division in the laboratory comes from the establishment of core facilities within the framework of the Pain Lab.  While graduate students, postdocs, and research fellows are mentored by a primary Principal Investigator, the approach to most programs is team-based.  These new resources are vast and include molecular biochemistry, cell culture, DNA, radioactivity, histology, animal behavior and holding, perfusion, tissue culture, electrophysiology, and support cores.  Graduate students, postdocs and research fellows in addition to collaborators share these resources.  An abbreviated list of the major equipment includes light microscopy, fluorescent microscopy, organ bath, calcium imaging, patch clamp, imaging systems, lyophilizers, ultracentrifugation, blood analysis, cryogenic storage, shakers, ovens, centrifuges, incubators, biosafety hoods, walk-in fume hood, dialysis system, electroporator, bioanalyzer (electrophoresis, DNA, and flow cytometry), RT-PCR, microplate readers (fluorescence and UV/Vis), robotic microplate processors, gamma and beta counters, microtomes.
