The Center for Pain and the Brain is a multidisciplinary team comprised of leading neurologists, physician-scientists, psychologists, physicists and neurobiologists. Founded and directed by David Borsook MD PhD, the Center spans Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and McLean Hospital. Our research focuses on the discovery of novel pain pathways, developing novel high-throughput methods for evaluating analgesics, and incorporating results from animal research into human applications. We are one of the few Centers that evaluates both pediatric and adult patient groups. Conducting neuroimaging studies in both acute and chronic pain cohorts as well as experimental pain in healthy volunteers, we seek to transform and improve the field of pain medicine.
