Acute to Chronic Pain Signatures in Traumatic Injury

The goal of the proposed project is to identify biosignatures that predict resilience or vulnerability to the transition from acute to chronic pain in a cohort of patients recovering from an acute musculoskeletal trauma.

There is one in person visit that will include a 30-min MRI scan, sensory testing, and blood draw. Two follow-up surveys will be sent to the participants at 3- and 6-months following their injury.
