Why do people develop chronic pain?
Horizon Magazine – European Commission
As a good start in 2020 the European commission published a dedicated issue on pain "‘Why do people develop chronic pain" in the “Horizon, the EU research & Innovation magazine“. The article contains information on two Projects supported by the European Commission: „DoloRisk Understanding risk factors and determinants for neuropathic pain „ and „Cordis: Decomposition of pain into celltypes”. Prof. Bennett is the lead coordinator of the DOLORisk project, a study across nine countries investigating the different factors that influence a person’s risk of chronic neuropathic pain. Prof. Ernfors is leading the PainCells project, which is shining a light on the mysterious processes that transmit pain.
