About the Connecticut Pain Consortium

The Connecticut Pain Consortium (CTPC) is a translational pain research and education collaboration, which is the first of its kind in Connecticut. The Consortium also serves as a single point of access for all individuals and entities including researchers, physicians, service providers, pain sufferers, caregivers, healthcare systems and policymakers seeking pain-related resources in Connecticut and nationally.

Through its facilitation of collaborative public and private efforts, the CTPC works to bring together data, research, education and pain management, in support of individually targeted approaches to pain treatment.

Current and future activities include:

  • Online research funding library containing up-to-date listings of past, current and upcoming pain-focused research and funding in Connecticut
  • Access to the latest study findings and publications
  • The creation of a data portal, which will serve as a central location to share and access pain-related data gathered in Connecticut
  • Establishment of an advanced data science and modeling capability that serves as a collaborative research resource across the state
  • Development and dissemination of educational and training materials related to pain management
  • Online resource library of relevant and up to date pain-focused apps, websites, educational tools, podcasts and seminars
  • Locator guide of Connecticut and national pain-related treatment providers, organizations and services

Organizational Structure:

The CTPC is governed by a steering group drawn from participating organizations. Guidance will be provided by an external advisory board, consisting of leaders in pain research, management, and education.

University of Connecticut Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dental Medicine, Pharmacy, and Social Work, Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine.
