Strength in Numbers: Discovery Requires a Team    

III. Epigenetics and Chronic Pain

Recent multidisciplinary investigations have highlighted the influence of environmental factors (such as nutrition, stress, medications, and lifestyle) on the expression of human epigenetics and its correlation with the development of chronic pain conditions including orofacial pain. 

 Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the various factors that influence and control epigenetics
  2. Review the current understanding of epigenetics and chronic pain conditions
  3. Discuss the multidisciplinary approaches necessary to conduct investigations in this field
