Building on decades of Feinberg discovery
The limitations of available therapies for chronic pain result from major gaps in the understanding of fundamental mechanisms underlying this complex condition. There are no scientifically validated treatments available for chronic pain.
The Center for Translational Pain Research looks to accelerate and support the work being done in pain research at Northwestern by providing efficiencies through spaces and resources that will benefit our members.
We recently established a rodent behavioral core where we have already started studies regarding chronic pain and addictive or non-addictive drug exposure in models. In the near future, the center will establish a dedicated space to for clinical trials to serve the members already engaged in multiple clinical trials where efficacy and safety of novel treatments are being investigated.
Our center builds off the 20 years of discovery at Northwestern, including seminal contributions to the science of pain, especially for chronic pain.
