The Centre for Pain Research
About the Centre
The Centre for Pain Research is one of the leading centres in Europe for research into the causes, impact and management of pain. A particular strength is its work in chronic pain among children. Many have their childhoods stolen by pain, living closeted and restricted lives, dependent upon medicines and on the support of families.
In the UK, eight per cent of adults report a significant period of severe pain lasting longer than three months, and one per cent of adults have incurable pain continually. Unable to engage in normal activities, the physical pain often descends into an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and helplessness that grows with failed attempts to cope.

Meet the team
The Centre is home to a team of interdisciplinary researchers investigating the best ways of helping people learn how to live with incurable pain. The senior academics at the Centre are at the top of their field; what they need is to be joined by the leaders of tomorrow, who can help them take the next step in their ambition of improving the lives of people in pain. Scholarships will allow them to do so. Meet the team.
