Pain and Neuroinflammation Imaging Lab

Daniel Albrecht, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Alumni)

In March 2014, I received my PhD in medical neuroscience from the Indiana University School of Medicine where I used positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to study aberrations in the dopamine system in different neuropathologies, including addiction and chronic pain.  Now as a research fellow at the Martinos Center, I’m continuing my study of chronic pain disorders, using state-of-the-art PET/MR scanners.  I’m working with Dr. Loggia and colleagues to investigate how neuroinflammation is associated with various chronic pain disorders, including fibromyalgia and sciatica.  In the future, I hope to be able use our research here to improve quality of life for people who suffer from chronic pain.
