Professor Lorimer Moseley is a world-renowned pain scientist. His landmark discoveries about the science of pain and bodily protection, and the scientific development of ‘Explaining Pain’, have informed the evidence-base for treatment of persisting pain globally.
Lorimer leads the Body in Mind Research Group, based at the University of South Australia and at Neuroscience Research Australia, in Sydney, Australia. The Body in Mind research group investigates the role of the brain and mind in chronic pain. His research group conducts studies with human subjects – both healthy volunteers and people in pain, with a focus on public engagement and education.
His work includes over 300 publications in scientific journals, including articles in Lancet Neurology, JAMA Internal, and multiple papers in PNAS, Current Biology, Brain, PAIN and Neurology. He is Associate Editor of PAIN, the Journal of Pain, the British Journal of Sports Medicine, and the European Journal of Pain.
Lorimer established and leads the Pain Revolution, a movement committed to embedding the capacity to deliver best practice pain education and care in Australian rural and regional communities. Pain Revolution runs an annual flagship event, the Pain Revolution Rural Outreach Tour. The tour gets specialist pain scientists and health professionals on their bikes for a 7-day education tour to raise awareness, knowledge, skills and funds to support the Local Pain Educator Program.
