Dr. Hackshaw joined the faculty in 1990. His current research involves fibroblast growth factors (FGFs), which are well-described modifiers of angiogenesis, and endothelial cell proliferation. He and his colleagues are investigating these and other factors roles as neurotrophins in pain propagation. Dr. Hackshaw's specialty interests are fibromyalgia, chronic pain, systemic lupus erythematosus and vasculitis. His research interests center around the mechanisms of neurotrophins in propagating chronic pain states.
