Biography

Background
Professor David Finn is Professor of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Principal Investigator and Founding Co-Director of the Centre for Pain Research ( http://www.nuigalway.ie/centre-for-pain-research ) at NUI Galway.  Professor Finn graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Biotechnology from NUI Galway in 1997 and a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Bristol in 2001.  From 2001 to 2004, Professor Finn worked as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Institute of Neuroscience, University of Nottingham.  In 2004, he was appointed to a Lectureship (Below the Bar) in the Department of Physiology, NUI, Galway.  In 2007, he was appointed to a Lectureship (Above the Bar) in Pharmacology and Therapeutics and to a Personal Professorship in Pharmacology and Therapeutics in 2014.  The overall aim of Professor Finn’s research is to increase our understanding of the neurobiology of pain and psychiatric disorders including anxiety and depression.  His work focuses, in particular, on the affective and cognitive dimensions of pain, stress-pain interactions, and neuroinflammatory processes, with an emphasis on the endogenous cannabinoid, opioid and monoaminergic systems.  An integrative, whole-systems neuroscience approach is employed, combining preclinical behavioural models with neurochemical and molecular analyses.  Professor Finn is a former recipient of the President of Ireland Young Researcher Award from Science Foundation Ireland, the Wyeth Award for outstanding research in Preclinical Psychopharmacology from the British Association for Psychopharmacology and the Pain Research Medal from the Irish Pain Society.  He is currently President of the Irish Pain Society, and he sits on the Scientific Advisory Panel of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology.  He is also a member of the International Cannabinoid Research Society, the International Association for the Study of Pain, the British Pharmacological Society, Faculty of 1000 Prime, and a member of the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Psychopharmacology,  Brain Research and Frontiers in Neuropharmacology.  From 2012 - 2015 Professor Finn served as Director of the Galway Neuroscience Centre (http://www.nuigalway.ie/neuroscience).    In addition to directing his research programme, Professor Finn teaches a range of Pharmacology topics to undergraduate and postgraduate science and medical students.   

Research Interests

Summary of Research Interests

The overall objective of Professor Finn’s research is to increase understanding of the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the development and treatment of pain, inflammation, mood disorders and impaired cognition.  This work is concerned with elucidating the role of a number of different receptor types (cannabinoid, opioid, adrenoceptor, imidazoline, serotonin, vanilloid, N-type Ca2+channels) in mediating and modulating behavioural, neurochemical and neuroendocrine responses relevant to pain, anxiety, depression and cognition. An integrative, whole systems neuroscience approach is employed, combining behavioural models with in vivo and ex vivo measurement of neurotransmitters, lipids (e.g. endocannabinoids), proteins or genes (e.g. cytokines, receptors, enzymes, signal transduction molecules, immediate early genes and transcription factors) in discrete brain regions and assessment of hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis function.  This research, which is funded from a number of competitive sources including Science Foundation Ireland, the Irish Health Research Board, The Wellcome Trust, the Higher Education Authority, the Irish Research Council and Industry (e.g. Covidien, Alkermes) aims to make a significant contribution to the knowledge-base on pain and stress-related psychiatric disorders and support the development of novel therapeutic agents for their treatment.
