What do we do at the PRI?

The Pain Research Institute (PRI) is a cross-departmental, interdisciplinary institute established by the University of Liverpool. The PRI provides a platform for pain researchers across the Liverpool region, including NHS institutions and other universities. Research conducted within and in collaboration with the PRI ranges from small laboratory experiments to large clinical trials involving healthy volunteers and patients with pain disorders. Our administrative offices are situated in Aintree University Hospital, in the Clinical Sciences Centre, alongside the Pain Relief Foundation (PRF) offices. The PRF is a dedicated pain research charity (https://painrelieffoundation.org.uk) that funds much of the research conducted at the PRI.
