Sharon Gordon - March 2013

0 2855
Sharon Gordon, D.D.S., M.P.H., Ph.D., is associate professor in the Department of Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, Baltimore. She received her undergraduate degree at the University of North Texas and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Gordon received her Master of Public Health and Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland.

Gordon's research interest is injury and its clinical sequela--pain and wound healing--and the interaction of the inflammatory response and nervous system in pain. Her lab employs clinical and molecular biological techniques to investigate the cellular mechanisms underlying tissue injury, and the factors contributing to differential pain experience. Clinical investigations are aimed at understanding mechanisms of acute and chronic pain, and developing new methods of pain control. Specific research interests are translational and clinical studies that evaluate novel therapeutic agents and permit examination of molecular responses to pain and analgesia. Previous studies have evaluated pain mechanisms in human subjects by correlating biomarkers and pain report.
