- To contribute to the development of new methods to manage chronic pain.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,066,312 over three years to the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), to continue to support basic research, led by Allan Basbaum, on understanding the brain mechanisms that process pain messages and that contribute to the transition from acute to chronic pain after injury. The goal of the research is to contribute to the development of new methods to manage chronic pain.
This follows Open Philanthropy's August 2018 support and falls within its interest in funding scientific research, and specifically within its interest in advancing transformative basic science.
