As an adjunct to these two goals, this Initiative also encourages the development of novel measures of pain in patients and animals that are non-invasive and objective and that permit a behavioral or functional assessment of pain. The primary outcome of this Initiative will be increased knowledge of the biological mechanisms underlying chronic pain disorders, nociception, and analgesic therapies.

Two major goals of this funding opportunity are: to stimulate research on patients with chronic painful disorders; and to stimulate the development and utilization of novel animal models of chronic orofacial pain conditions. As an adjunct to these two goals, this Initiative also encourages the development of novel measures of pain in patients and animals that are non-invasive and objective and that permit a behavioral or functional assessment of pain. The primary outcome of this Initiative will be increased knowledge of the biological mechanisms underlying chronic pain disorders, nociception, and analgesic therapies. This program will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism.

Two major goals of this funding opportunity are: to stimulate research on patients with chronic painful disorders; and to stimulate the development and utilization of novel animal models of chronic orofacial pain conditions. As an adjunct to these two goals, this Initiative also encourages the development of novel measures of pain in patients and animals that are non-invasive and objective and that permit a behavioral or functional assessment of pain. The primary outcome of this Initiative will be increased knowledge of the biological mechanisms underlying chronic pain disorders, nociception, and analgesic therapies. This program will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism.
