He is the founder of Molecular Pain. “In our journey to explore molecular pain mechanisms and to identify effective targets for pain management, it is important for scientists around the world to have a rapid and freely accessible forum for exchanging ideas, debating hot topics, developing collaborations, promoting science, and improving pain medicine. As an online, Open Access journal, Molecular Pain will help to fulfill these goals.”
