About Us

Founded in 2007, the Centre for Pain Research (CPR) is an interdisciplinary pain research collaboration between National University of Ireland, Galway, the HSE and related health service agencies.  Our aim is to improve our scientific understanding of pain from the basic sciences through to the population level. 

Our research activity is organised into the following five clusters:

  • Pre-clinical research
  • Psychological and neuropsychological aspects of pain
  • Pain treatment and pain management
  • Population and policy aspects of pain
  • Integration of pre-clinical pain research and clinical practice
