Robert Coghill

Section Editor
Cincinnati, USA

Robert Coghill earned his Ph.D. from Virginia Commonwealth University and completed post-doctoral fellowships at the Universitè de Montrèal and the National Institutes of Health. He is currently a Professor of Pediatrics and Director of the Center for Understanding Pediatric Pain at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. Research in Dr. Coghill's laboratory seeks to provide a better understanding of the functional organization of central nervous system mechanisms involved in the conscious experience of pain and its implications for clinical pain states. Imaging and measurement methodologies provide the critical tools to accomplish these investigations in both children and adults.
