The Strasbourg Pain Initiative

The consortium of research teams associated with EURIDOL is called the “Strasbourg Pain Initiative”. Created in 2017, this research consortium made the EURIDOL project possible. Today, it is the Graduate School's scientific arm, coordinated by EURIDOL's Scientifique Director, Dr. Michel Barrot.

EURIDOL doctoral students carry out their work in one of the laboratories of the Strasbourg Pain Initiative. The research teams also host Master 1 and Master 2 interns.

Strasbourg's pain research community is located on different sites in and around Strasbourg:
