The Pain Studies Lab is a research group and physical research space funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) at Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT). It was founded and is directed by Dr. Diane Gromala, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Computational Technologies for Transforming Pain.

The diversity of our research work is reflected in our funding, which includes GRAND, a Network of Centres of Excellence; the CRC; and Canada’s Tri-Councils.
