“I am very excited to join the team at the CPCoE” said Dr. Sud. “I see the research that the CPCoE has committed to over the next few years will be very influential to Veterans and their families suffering from chronic pain. I am eager to join the research team and commit to helping foster more Veteran-led research.”

In addition to welcoming Dr. Sud, would also like to thank Dr. Norm Buckley as he will be stepping down from his role in the coming months. “We couldn’t have started the CPCoE without Dr. Buckley.
