Message from the Director

Bonnie Stevens Pain is a universal phenomenon that health professionals across all disciplines encounter in individuals at all ages, in all health care settings, and across all situations. We are at a critical juncture where research of pain mechanisms and pain management strategies require effective translation to ensure optimal outcomes for individuals who suffer from pain. I believe that the University of Toronto Centre for the Study of Pain will play an important role in linking researchers and clinicians through education. I am extremely proud to be an integral part of this interfaculty centre and look forward to fulfilling the vision of building a strong and internationally focused centre addressing the research to practice gap.
