Sheffield Pain Network
Pain is a complex multidimensional experience, affecting a wide range of people. We are bringing together experts from across the University of Sheffield to improve the understanding and treatment of pain.
The causes of pain are still poorly understood and this limits treatment options. To improve the understanding and treatment of pain, an extensive multidisciplinary approach is required.
