Human oral cancer is associated with significant chronic pain, and a comprehensive understanding of the biology and mechanisms underlying this chronic pain is critical for developing better pain management strategies. This project will determine molecular characteristics, including a specific signaling system (endosomal GPCR kinase), associated with chronic oral cancer pain, using tissue samples obtained from patients with this condition. The findings will then be used to inform studies in animal models of human oral cancer pain to enhance understanding how endosomal GPCR kinase contributes to human oral cancer pain.
