MGH Center for Translational Pain Research
The Mass General Center for Translational Pain Research is working to bridge the gap between basic science pain research and clinical pain management.
Pain is a common problem that economically and socially impacts the individual and in turn, society. Chronic pain patients suffer from multiple, related problems that diminish their quality of life and their ability to fully participate in society. Advances in understanding the mechanisms of pain and the development of more effective treatments are essential to both the individual and to society.
The Center for Translational Pain Research (CTPR) at Massachusetts General Hospital is conducting research to gain a better understanding of pain mechanisms, human biological systems involved in pain, how humans experience pain and the development of better treatments and interventions.
Mass General Center for Translational Pain Research
The CTPR consists of both a clinical research facility and a preclinical research laboratory, and is one of the few pain research centers nationwide that integrates clinical and preclinical pain research.
