I second that notion .. I am in a PhD program in nursing, where we have
faculty doing everything from investigating receptor-specific opioid
actions in the rat to qualitative phenomenologic study of the experience
of recovering from stroke. My own research is based in the critical care
unit, since I am an ICU nurse by education and temperament; but the basic
science is there too. My adviser and I just finished an extensive review
of the neuroanatomic and neurophysiologic substrates of opioid-induced
side effects, coming soon to a journal near you <g>.
Of course, it helps that UCSF has a few good basic neuroscientists on
board too <big grin>....
