The need for quality standards in preclinical research is gaining attention, especially in translational research. The IMI-PainCare consortium has reached out to EQIPD to collaborate in assessing the study design and data analysis for their studies in the BioPain and TRiPP groups. This collaboration will ensure equivalent quality standards in preclinical research among their project members, enhancing reproducibility and reducing failure rates and research waste. We welcome IMI-Pain Care to the team and looks forward to the outputs of this collaboration.
