Professional Background

Since 1980, Professor Nicholas’ main interest has been combining research and clinical pain practice, especially multidisciplinary applications of psychology. This has meant working on many fronts: as a member of Scientific Committee for the 2008 IASP conference; as a reviewer and now an associate editor for PAIN; from 1988-1990 as the inaugural program director, INPUT program at St Thomas’ Hospital, London, and, since 1994, at Sydney University’s Pain Management Research Institute. He has an active clinical research program with international collaborators, alongside postgraduate pain education through our web-based courses, plus face-to-face training in psychological pain management in many countries.
