The Center for Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome (CAMPS) research team seeks to promote, conduct, and disseminate research aimed at improving understanding of the etiologic factors important in the development of chronic non-inflammatory musculoskeletal pain syndromes, as well as advance multidisciplinary treatment strategies to positively impact the lives of youth with chronic pain and their families.

In order to reach these goals, the lab's team aims to:

  • Maintain a high level of scientific rigor
  • Collaborate across disciplines, medical specialties, and institutions nationally and internationally
  • Support novel research objectives and methodologies
  • Provide mentorship and financial support for AMPS-related research across disciplines
  • Seek funding support from federal and foundational sources
  • Serve as representatives of AMPS research at national scientific meetings, and align our objectives with those of national medical and allied-health societies

Project Highlights

  • Elucidating the role of patient and parental resilience in chronic musculoskeletal pain
  • Identifying genetic risk factors for the development of AMPS
  • Characterizing the association of disordered eating and AMPS
  • Understanding the contributors to dyscognition (“brain fog”) among youth with juvenile fibromyalgia syndrome
