Dr. Amynah Pradhan PhD is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her lab investigates novel therapies for migraine, and identified the delta opioid receptor as a promising target for this disorder. Ongoing studies in her lab are centered on how delta receptors regulate migraine-associated symptoms. Further, Dr. Pradhan is interested in identifying overlapping mechanism between chronic opioid use and headache disorders. Additionally, her work focuses on examining the molecular mechanisms that contribute to the chronification of migraine, as well as overlapping mechanisms between migraine and psychiatric conditions.
