Dr. Haroutounian’s research is primarily focused on individualized approach to the treatment and prevention of chronic pain, particularly neuropathic pain due to peripheral nerve injury or symmetric polyneuropathy. We use translational approach to investigate clinically-relevant mechanisms in chronic pain and to identify factors that can predict individual’s susceptibility to develop chronic pain, and their response to pharmacotherapy. As the continuum of the translational approach, we are interested in improving the methodology of assessment and monitoring of patient-reported outcomes in pain.
