 Founded in June 2003, pain research at McGill University is conducted at the Alan Edwards Centre for Research on Pain. The Centre comprises 40 researchers from the Faculties of Medicine, Dentistry and Science. Its main goal is to bring together the McGill community of basic and clinical pain researchers to promote research that will result in cures for chronic pain. Through activities and international collaborations, the Centre focuses on new discoveries and their clinical applications that will improve the prevention and treatment of chronic pain.
