The Center for the Study of Itch & Sensory Disorders seeks to understand the fundamental underlying mechanisms of itch and translate these findings into treatments for patients suffering from intractable itch.
The Center is composed of two major academic programs: Basic and Translational Research and Behavioral Core and Patient Care, Clinical Studies and Clinical Trials. Learn more about the Center.
