Shingo Ishihara received a Master’s degree in Biology from Fort Hays State University and his PhD in integrated biomedical science from Rush University. Additionally, he has work experience in the pharmaceutical industry and has experience in a broad range of research fields such as microbiology, immunology, and osteoarthritis. His PhD research was focused on developing methods for assessment of knee hyperalgesia, of anxiety-like behavior, and of proprioception in models of osteoarthritis. Additionally, his research focused on how CCR2 affects pain and anxiety behavior in experimental osteoarthritis. These areas are necessary to better understand the mechanisms of osteoarthritis pain and will help enable development of novel drugs. He just completed his Ph.D. degree and is planning to continue his research as a post-doc in Dr Malfait’s lab. Outside work, Shingo enjoys running, competing in triathlons, and repairing cars.
