Andrew Schrepf, Ph.D.
Andrew Schrepf is a Research Investigator in the Department of Anesthesiology and the Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center. His work focuses on the inflammatory and immunological substrates of centralized pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, temporomandibular disorder, and chronic pelvic pain. His work uses deep phenotyping techniques including gene expression, provoked inflammatory responses, neuroimaging, and quantitative sensory testing to determine the neurobiological mechanisms of symptoms common to chronic pain conditions, obesity, and cancer. He completed his undergraduate work at Cornell College and received his doctorate from the University of Iowa in Health Psychology in 2015, where he was supported by an individual F31 National Research Service Award from National Cancer Institute (NCI) and a T32 program from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). He is a member of the Multidisciplinary Approach to the Study of Chronic Pelvic Pain (MAPP) Research Network, with a focus on inflammatory biomarker development. He is currently supported by an institutional K12 training grant from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR).
