Welcome to the Pain Research Lab

Our lab has been studying pain and pain-related psychosocial factors over the past decade. Our studies have had a wide range exhibiting the varying interests of our excellent students (e.g., sport related pain research, epidemiology of pain in South-Eastern Ontario, Cross-Cultural Pain experience and outcomes [i.e., Chinese], & Chronic Pelvic pain in men and in women). Please review the research component of this website for more detail.

Many people are unaware that there are Chronic Pelvic Pain diseases that occur frequently in our country and the world at large. In recent years, our lab has focused more so on understanding the life impact of Chronic Pelvic Pain for women and for men. New grants and research projects are focused on: Pain, disability, and relationship distress in men suffering from Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CP/CPPS), and Pain, disability, and relationship distress in women suffering from chronic Interstitial Cystitis (IC). New students can expect to be involved with studies that help extend this range of research.
