About the Harrison Lab
The Neuroplasticity and Systems Biology Lab, led by Dr. Benjamin Harrison, is part of the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of New England's College of Osteopathic Medicine. Also a part of the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence, the Harrison Laboratory studies mechanisms of neuropathic pain using an interdisciplinary approach. We study the molecular biology of neuron growth and regeneration following injuries and in certain human diseases. Our techniques include bioinformatics, RNA-sequencing, Western blotting, PC12 cell culture, immunohistochemistry, qPCR, and in vivo models. The lab has presented numerous posters across the United States, and members have co-authored on many scientific papers. Watch the video above for a quick introduction to what we do!
