Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Laboratory

Sadaf is an undergraduate student at the University of British Columbia working as a research assistant at the Pelvic Pain and Endometriosis Lab supervised by Dr. Paul Yong. Her research interests explore the symptoms of endometriosis-associated pain affecting women’s health. Current standard treatments for endometriosis are limited in their effectiveness for pelvic pain, which may be due to the lack of understanding of how endometriosis causes pain. Therefore, her research projects explore how pelvic pain is associated with neurogenesis and other neuroproliferative markers in endometriosis-associated symptoms.
