PAIN Scientific Interest Group

The PAIN Special Interest Group (PAIN SIG) is comprised of investigators from a number of different institutes and centers at the NIH that are interested in the neurobiological mechanisms underlying pain. Our group is moderated by Drs. Lauren Atlas, Yarimar Carrasquillo and Alex Chesler and includes students, postdocs, postbacs, staff, investigators, and clinicians. Research areas of interest span from molecular and cellular studies in model systems to clinical studies in both healthy individuals and pain patients. Our goal is to provide a forum where researchers from different backgrounds can openly exchange their ideas and perspectives as well as discuss the latest technical approaches for the study of pain.

The PAIN SIG hosts monthly seminars presented by pain research leaders across the country as well as an annual mini-symposium that showcases cutting-edge intramural pain research. Every month, all PAIN SIG trainees are also invited to join the speaker for lunch on the day of the seminar.

For additional information about the PAIN SIG or events sponsored by the PAIN SIG, please contact Lauren Atlas, Yarimar Carrasquillo, or Alex Chesler.
