Pain is a protective mechanism that can indicate possible threats to our health. Without pain to serve as a warning signal, we would be at high risk of harming our body. Clifford Woolf will share his latest research on pain and explore how to measure it, model it and develop new therapies that may alleviate the opioid crisis.
