Neuroscience of Orofacial Pain & Temporomandibular Disorders Program

The Neuroscience of Orofacial Pain and Temporomandibular Disorders Program supports basic, translational, and clinical research on:
  • Orofacial pain and neuropathies
  • Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders
  • Development of biomarkers for diagnostics and prognostics
  • development of therapeutics.
In addition, the program encourages research that is responsive to trans-NIH initiatives including the NIH Pain Consortium, the NIH Neuroscience Blueprint, and the NIH Common Fund.
