Emily Bartley

College of Dentistry

Dr. Emily Bartley is a postdoctoral trainee on a NINDS funded “Integrative and Translational Training in Pain Research” T-32 training grant and is an active member of the Pain Research and Intervention Center of Excellence (PRICE) where she is mentored by Drs. Roger Fillingim (Director) and Mike Robinson. She is currently in her third year of training and has recently been awarded a grant from the Sharon S. Keller Chronic Pain Research program. This program was established in 2013 to fund research projects that have a high likelihood of leading to new treatments as well as increased access to or expansion of treatment options for people with chronic pain. Dr. Bartley’s research award was one of four $35,000 grants that demonstrated the greatest merit and potential for success. Her project entitled “Assessing the Efficacy of a Hope Intervention in Temporomandibular Disorder” will establish the ORION program which represents efforts to Optimize Resilience in Orofacial Pain and Nociception (ORION).  The study will evaluate the effectiveness of a hope-based resilience intervention on clinical and experimental pain in individuals with temporomandibular disorders, as well as examine various biological markers that may contribute to treatment response. The overall purpose of this study is to expand upon recent evidence suggesting that positive resilience factors are associated with health-promoting effects including greater quality of life and lower pain and disability, as well as improve upon existing therapies for pain management in temporomandibular disorders.
