PRICE of Pain Podcast is here! Join Dr. Joshua Crow as he hosts researchers, clinicians, and industry professionals to discuss recent breakthroughs in pain science and how they’re being applied across a multitude of fields. Whether you’re a science nerd, current researcher, or just looking for an educational (and maybe even entertaining!) way to pass the time.
For this episode, I welcome Assistant Professor, biomedical engineer, and director of the UF Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Lab, Jennifer Nichols, Ph.D. to the studio. Her lab designs computer models that simulate human movement in order to measure functional differences between various conditions. Join the conversation as Dr. Nichols describes how this incredible technology can be wielded to predict surgical outcomes, compare the effectiveness of therapies, and better understand how pain affects movement.

Dr. Kyle Allen is the director of the Orthopedic Biomedical Engineering Laboratory at the University of Florida and an associate professor in the College of Engineering. We discuss his unlikely journey from economics student to biomedical engineer, and his work using rodents to develop new technologies that could translate into clinical research of movement and pain in humans.
Behind the mask on this episode is Professor Steve Anton, Chief of the UF Institute on Aging’s Division of Clinical Research. We discuss behavioral and dietary interventions to restore healthy metabolic balance, reduce pain and inflammation, and promote healthy aging!
Associate Professor, Paul Borsa, PhD, ATC, FACSM, is the director of the Sports Medicine Research Lab at the UF College of Health and Human Performance.
