Sébastien Sannajust

I graduated from UNE with a B.S. in Medical Biology and a minor in Business Administration in 2016. I started my research with Dr. Tamara King in the Fall of 2013. In the Winter of 2015, I worked as a technician and currently as a laboratory manager. I have been interested in chronic pain states from observing patients in dental clinics suffering from orofacial disorders. My interest lies in dentistry where in the lab I spearheaded a characterization model of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis. I have presented my data at numerous local, regional, and national conferences - including Society for Neuroscience and Maine Osteopathic Association. I currently manage eight undergraduates and oversee three medical students with their corresponding research projects ranging from cancer-induced bone pain, osteoarthritis joint pain, and nerve-injury induced pain. Outside my work, I am an active advocate for chronic pain patients, by leading discussions and events for the PEAC, where I can educate and bring awareness to the community.
