Research Centers at NYU Dentistry
NYU Pain Research Center
Signaling the future of pain research and treatment. Twenty percent of the adult U.S. population suffers from chronic pain. Opioids, once thought to be the ideal treatment for chronic pain, are highly addictive and the primary cause of drug related mortality, making them a non-viable alternative. Despite this, over 140 million opioid prescriptions/year are generated, and drug-related deaths have continued to increase rapidly because alternatives have yet to be discovered. The NYU Pain Research Center (NYUPRC) was created to address this health crisis.
