Research Resources

Information for the new researcher or veteran in the field, Pain 101 is our growing collection of topical articles on important issues in pain research. Check out our articles on modeling pain in lower organisms, the role of glia in chronic pain, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Our Pain Genes Resource will have the most up-to-date information on the genetics of pain sensitivity, risk of chronic pain and response to analgesics, presented in a format that makes it easy to keep current. We're in the process of pulling together data on the first  53 genes—you can help this resource grow by submitting new genes and studies. Stay tuned for more resources to come, including our Drug Pipeline database.
