Research Consortium led by Grünenthal receives € 2 million grant from the European Fund for Regional Development and the State of North Rhine-Westphalia

Aachen, Germany, November 16, 2017 – Many patients who suffer strong or persistent pain receive inadequate relief from therapy. Improving pharmacotherapy and management for refractory pain is a so enormously complex problem that only concerted approaches which link together groups with different relevant expertise are likely to have success in discovering and developing novel and effective analgesics. Grünenthal, aiming at driving new solutions in pain, organized and leads such a partnership with three research groups from the Institute for Neurosciences and Medicine (INM) of the Research Centre Jülich, and with Taros Chemicals, a firm specialized in chemical design and synthesis. Together they designed an ambitious project which could pave the way to analgesic drugs with novel dual modes of action which target causes of refractory pain.
