Section for Neurological Ache Research and Therapy

Head of the Section:

  • Prof. Dr. med. Ralf Baron


The Section for Neurological Ache Research and Therapy was founded in 2004 and is linked with the Department of Neurology. Scientific research focuses on the investigation of pathophysiological mechanisms that cause pain to occur and to become chronic and the treatment of different neuropathological pain syndromes. Employees in the Section have already performed numerous studies on chronic pain.

The Sectional Director, Professor Baron, is a speaker of the German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (DFNS e.V.). The purpose of this network of German pain researchers is to obtain a better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the development of neuropathic pain and the use of early intervention to prevent pain from becoming chronic.
