Research field and research philosophy

The major goal is to identify and modulate key features of human pain neuroplasticity leading to prevention of maladaptive neuroplasticity and promote advantageous neuroplasticity, offering ways to manage chronic pain. A core research philosophy in TGN’s  work is that pain research by nature is multidisciplinary, hence interdisciplinary and intersectorial collaboration is a key concept, as is collaboration with excellent researchers and students.
