Pain Research Group

The Pain Research Group consists of several sub-groups working in different fields of pain research.

About the group

We try to combine studies in pain epidemiology, experimental pain and clinical pain research. Topics of special interest are the individual difference in pain sensitivity, pain pharmacology and mechanisms in general, mechanisms of neuropathic pain, and mechanisms involved the transition from acute to chronic pain.

These topics are studied in a variety of models, from large community-based studies  to smaller studies in the perioperative period and in  experimental human models.
