Telomere length, a measure of cellular aging, is inversely associated with chronic pain severity.
Our curiosity-driven, basic science research was first aimed at understanding, at a molecular level, how cells protect their chromosomal ends (telomeres). Beginning with model organism systems, our subsequent research has led to collaborative discoveries that include understanding of disease processes in humans and optimizing human health.
In this lecture, I briefly explain the fundamental and clinical science discoveries, then discuss the growing evidence that life-long factors impact on telomeres, and may reverberate throughout the life course to affect health. These factors start from earliest life and include nutrition and conditions of pregnancy, and societal and environmental factors. Hence this research has led to broader, including societal, implications.
