Pain Innovation Challenge

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) at the University of Pittsburgh is soliciting applications to the Pain Research Challenge. Awards will be funded by the Virginia Kaufman Endowment Fund and CTSI. Research solutions can address the dynamics of pain, causes and alleviation of pain, and treatment to prevent and/or mitigate pain. Special preference will be given to project areas emphasized in the endowment including pain associated with post-herpetic neuralgia, cancer, or arthritis. Solutions should address a specific problem in the area(s) of pain including mechanism, treatments, modalities and impacts of acute and chronic pain. Pain can include both physiological and psychological factors.
