About the Pain Research Institute

The Pain Research Institute exists to support people who conduct research into the causes and best treatments of human chronic pain.

Our Mission

Our mission is to encourage researchers in developing their own research ideas into projects. We help them to find funding, and deliver their project to a high standard in order to benefit patients suffering with chronic pain.

The researchers working under the umbrella of the Pain Research Institute are a multi-disciplinary group. They collaborate closely with the Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, and with research groups in Liverpool, the UK and worldwide.

The Liverpool Pain Relief Foundation, a Pain Research Charity provides funding for our offices and administration. The Pain Research Institute is a Trans-Departmental Institute within the University of Liverpool.
