The MSTP Distinguished Lecture Series is proud to announce our next speaker, Dr. Vivianne L. Tawfik, M.D., Ph.D., from the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, who is presenting Neuroimmune Interactions In Chronic Pain: From Clinical to Clinically-Informed Basic Science. Dr. Tawfik’s work has been pivotal towards understanding the contribution of peripheral immune cells and spinal cord glial towards chronic pain conditions. In particular, her research has identified immune system differences between male and female mice that contribute towards divergent recovery between sexes after injury. As a physician-scientist, Dr. Tawfik also leads an outpatient practice that treats chronic pain patients after limb injury or with chronic postsurgical pain. In addition to her role as an Associate Professor, Dr. Tawfik also serves as the Director of the Fellowship in Anesthesia Research & Medicine (FARM) program.
