Arthritis Research UK Pain Centre

The centre based at the University of Nottingham, brings together healthcare professionals and research scientists from different fields to create a national centre for research into understanding the mechanisms of pain in arthritis.

Research at this centre aims to better understand the biological basis of pain in osteoarthritis, to develop new drugs to treat pain more effectively and use a more targeted treatment approach for individuals.

Alongside this research, the centre is investigating the basic pathways of pain perception and the changes in the tissues caused by arthritis to identify new targets for developing treatments. This research should help us to develop clinical trials which address the major concerns of people with arthritis pain.

This centre was originally awarded in 2010 and renewed for a second period of five years in 2015.
