Focus of Work


The mission of our research is to understand the pain experience in individuals with systemic rheumatic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and to identify the relationship between these experiences and pain pathways. This research is important because it paves the way for the development of effective pain prevention and management strategies to improve the well-being of our patients.
