The 3Rs in pain research

Research into pain and pain management is vital to improving the lives of those with a variety of conditions, but this work comes with its own ethical concerns. In particular, insights gained from animal models have been difficult to translate into new pain therapies. There is therefore a need to replace, reduce and refine the use of animal experiments in pain research.

Huge advances have been made in this area using non-invasive techniques ranging from cell culture to computational modelling.
