Research & Development

Networked innovation for the benefit of patients

Pain is an area with significant unmet medical needs. Many patients suffer for too long before receiving the right diagnosis – and an effective treatment. In fact, there are several pain conditions for which no medical solution is available. With nearly 50 years of experience in the field of pain research, we feel a strong sense of determination to deliver medical solutions allowing patients to relieve unnecessary suffering from pain – constantly striving to get closer to our vision of a world free of pain.

We take a holistic approach to research and development to create innovations that make a difference to patients’ lives. And we know that this needs a strong team with many different skills. For this reason, we place a strong focus on networked innovation – reaching out to the international research community to connect the dots and facilitate innovation. As a result, we’re able to establish collaborative projects that drive progress in pain research. Everything we do is based on our firm belief in transparency, open-mindedness and cooperation with all relevant stakeholders in the field of pain research and management.
