Centre for the Study of Pain

About Us

The University of Toronto Centre for the Study of Pain is a virtual centre that brings together outstanding scientists, clinicians, educators and trainees working in the faculties of dentistry, pharmacy, medicine and nursing to address the chronic pain crisis. We are home to one of the largest networks of researchers in pain worldwide. The Centre serves as a catalyst for progress by mobilizing partners and resources to improve the outcomes of those living with pain. In all of its activities, we act as a vital, internationally focused centre addressing the research to practice gap. Learn more
