Research/Career Interests: 

Gary DeLander's research centers around pain — the way pain signals are transmitted in the body, the means the body uses to inhibit pain signals and how various drugs work in the body to inhibit pain. His research efforts deal almost exclusively with these topics as they relate to the spinal cord and its role in the modification of pain. He has concentrated on the role of opioids and adenosine as endogenous inhibitors of pain.
