Dr. Pradhan is the Director for the Center of Clinical Pharmacology at Washington University School of Medicine and the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis. Her lab investigates novel therapies for migraine, and she identified the delta opioid receptor as a promising target for this disorder. Ongoing studies in her lab are focused on the differential role of mu and delta opioid receptors in headache. Additionally, the lab focuses on identifying the molecular mechanisms that contribute to migraine chronicity, as well as overlapping mechanisms between migraine and neuropsychiatric conditions.

We are interested in understanding mechanisms underlying how visceral organ function is regulated in the brain and how it influences emotional wellbeing. We utilize scRNAseq, molecular and neuroanatomical tools to obtain comprehensive understanding of how the brain interprets, adapts, and responds to signals from the peripheral organs during normal and pathological states and how it shapes our emotions. We are also fostering new collaborations to developing novel optical and genetic tools for high-throughput sequencing brain nuclei.
