Dr. Maixner’s research program focuses on identifying the pathophysiological processes that underlie pain perception, persistent pain conditions, and related disorders. His current research focuses on genetic, environmental, biological, and psychological risk factors that contribute to the onset and maintenance of chronic pain conditions. A long term goal of his program is to translate new discoveries into clinical practices that improve the ability to diagnose and treat patients experiencing chronic pain.
