Dr. Susruta Majumdar receives NIH Neuropathic Pain Relief Grant

Dr. Majumdar recently received a $100,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop compounds to treat neuropathic pain. The research digresses from studying the compounds found in the plant kratom, which has long been a focus of Majumdar’s work. Through his previous research, Majumdar has studied kratom’s potential to create safer alternatives to the use of opioid pain medications. But his work on this project is taking him in a new direction.
