Brief description Chronic pain is a major global health problem that currently affects over three million Australians. There are few drugs available for treating chronic pain and many have significant side-effects. Several ion channels are critical for conducting pain signals to the brain. Blocking these channels can provide pain relief and, in some cases, protection from brain injury following stroke. We are producing potent and selective blockers of these ion channels for the treatment of chronic pain and stroke.
