Maria Fitzgerald studies the developmental physiology and neurobiology of pain circuits in the brain and spinal cord. Her work has had a major impact on our understanding of how pain perception emerges in early life and how early pain experience can shape pain sensitivity for life. Maria studied Physiological Sciences at Oxford and trained in pain physiology and neuroscience with Patrick Wall FRS at UCL, who taught her to love science and to never be afraid of asking questions. She was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2000 and a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2016, as a world leader in the science of pain, whose work has had a major impact on the treatment of pain in infants. Her research has shown that while basic nociception is functional at birth, the systems in the brain that determine pain perception develop later and are vulnerable to stress and trauma in early life. Her research has changed clinical perception by showing that pain in infancy requires appropriate measurement and treatment which should be tailored to the developmental stage of the child. Maria is currently Professor of Developmental Neurobiology at University College London.

As medical liaison to the Comfort Ability Program (CAP) I am collaborating with our pain psychologists to develop specialized programs targeted at the abdominal pain and cancer pain related populations. In 2020, in collaboration with Dana Faber Cancer Institute (DFCI) and Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) Orthopedics departments to work to develop the Clinic of Oncological Pain Excellence (COPE) program, which prioritizes a multidiscipline approach for manage acute and chronic pain management within the solid tumor population. My research interests are focused on the value of interventional that improve on the management of chronic pain. Specific to the oncology population I am interested in identifying interventions that can be incorporated before during and after cancer treatment that will have a long-term positive impact on pain control and outcomes.
