With approximately 6,000 square feet of dedicated laboratory and office space. The Pain Labs have been designed and built to support the operational philosophy that is the cornerstone of the Pain Lab's multidisciplinary research programs. The labs are open and spacious, with specific assignments to Principal Investigators. The division in the laboratory comes from the establishment of core facilities within the framework of the Pain Lab.
