The Danish Pain Research Center is a research unit under Department of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University. The centre is affiliated with the Department of Neurology, Aarhus University Hospital. 

The centre was founded in 1994 with the aim to study chronic pain, in particular neuropathic pain and to understand underlying mechanisms and to improve treatment.

The research attempts to bridge the gap between pain physiology, experimental and clinical pain research and takes place in an interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers and clinicians in national and international research networks.
