Collaboration Aims to Cure Trigeminal Neuralgia Pain

The Facial Pain Research Foundation (FRPF) and researchers at the University of Florida are collaborating to combat a chronic facial pain disorder, trigeminal neuralgia (TN) through translational research such as human imaging and MRI studies to get a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in the debilitating disorder.

“Trigeminal neuralgia is probably the worst pain condition a person could ever have, and we don’t know what causes it,” said John K. Neubert, DDS, Ph.D., associate professor in the UF College of Dentistry, Department of Orthodontics.

The FPRF is funding two UF College of Dentistry researchers, Neubert and Robert M. Caudle, Ph.D., for more than $330,000 toward research projects to investigate TN.
