The Chronic Pain Research Alliance (CPRA) is an Initiative of The TMJ Association. The CPRA is the country’s first and only research-led collaborative advocacy effort dedicated to addressing chronic overlapping pain conditions (COPCs). CPRA promotes high-caliber scientific research, translates findings into educational programs for health care professionals and patients, and drives treatment development for COPCs. We work with a variety of invested stakeholders – leaders from the medical-scientific community, patients, advocacy organizations, corporate and federal research and policy agencies – to improve the lives of millions of pain sufferers worldwide.
