The mission of the United States Association for the Study of Pain (USASP) is to promote scientific advances that reduce the burden of pain. Our goal is to bring diverse perspectives, including those of scientists, clinicians, health-care providers, and policymakers, together to stimulate and support the study of pain and to translate that knowledge into improved pain relief.

As a body, USASP represents scientists nationwide who collaboratively research, diagnose, and treat pain in the United States. Membership remains open to scientists, professionals, and community members interested in our mission to provide pain relief while placing people first.
