SFB 1158: From nociception to chronic pain: Structure-function properties of neural pathways and their reorganization
What underlies the ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ nature of this key physiological function that has protected the animal kingdom from harm throughout evolution?
Why does pain convert into a disorder by becoming chronic?
And importantly, can we prevent, treat or revert these changes?

These questions are at the heart of the new Heidelberg Pain Consortium. Established by the German Research Foundation at Heidelberg University in July 2015, this centre comprises nineteen multidisciplinary projects and several associated research endeavours that span diverse, top-class clinical and basic research institutes in the twin cities of Heidelberg and Mannheim.

We welcome you to interact with the vibrant neuroscience and pain community of Heidelberg-Mannheim, participate in our collaborative research efforts and inform yourself about attractive career and training options as well as key events and resources.
