About Quebec Pain Research Network (QPRN)


The Pain Network's mission is to contribute to the understanding of the neurophysiological mechanisms of pain, to prevent its chronicization, and to improve its management in order to contribute to the well-being of people living with pain and their families, through innovative, inclusive, partnership-based and intersectoral research activities and the mobilization of knowledge.


We aim at achieving this mission through cohesive efforts between a group of 90 researchers associated to the four University Health Networks (Réseaux universitaires intégrés de santé; RUIS) of the province of Quebec: Université Laval, McGill University, Université de Montréal and Université de Sherbrooke, and to the Université du Québec network and Concordia University.
