Become, or Renew as, a “Pain Pal”, aka friends of pain research!

Help the research and education work performed at the Pain Management Research Institute (PMRI) by simply making a $70 donation thereby becoming a member of “Pain Pals” for the 2022/23 year. Additional donations are encouraged, if you are able to do so. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

By donating, you are helping to fund research assistants working on current projects such as ‘opioid-tapering’, ‘CBT to manage neuropathic pain’, ‘the role of cannabis to treat chronic pain’ and ‘transition from acute to chronic post-surgical pain’. PMRI has funding shortfalls in these and other critical areas, requiring immediate top-up funding. We sincerely hope that you can help!



We’re always in need of additional funding assistance
