PRECISION Pain Research Registry
The Pain Registry for Epidemiological, Clinical, and Interventional Studies and Innovation is also known as the PRECISION Pain Research Registry. The registry gathers data from research participants to determine risk factors for pain, develop prevention methods, evaluate common treatment interventions, and recommend more effective management in the future. Biological samples are collected from registry participants to study DNA sequences and other biomarkers within the emerging field of Precision Medicine. Our research team is working together with patients, research collaborators, and other agencies to achieve our vision of “a future for all unbounded by pain.” At present our registry focuses on chronic low back pain because it is highly prevalent and a leading cause of disability worldwide.
