Pain management research from the NIH HEAL Initiative.


Karp BI, Baker RG


This article presents an overview of the pain research programs within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Helping to End Addiction Long-term® Initiative, or NIH HEAL Initiative®. Launched in 2018 to address the opioid crisis, the NIH HEAL Initiative supports research on addiction prevention and treatment. A key component of addiction prevention is the development of new, effective, non-addictive treatments for acute and chronic pain. HEAL’s innovate research portfolio spans the spectrum from therapeutic discovery and development through clinical trials and into clinical practice.
