According to Equine Vet Dr Karina Bech Gleerup, the last thing a 'pain researcher' wants to do is cause an animal pain. In this 6minute podcast Dr Gleerup explains why

What started as a Phd study funded by the University of Copenhagen (Department of Large Animal Sciences) is now one of THE most down-loaded charts on the Internet. (see below for link)



The modest Dr Karina assures us she could never have done this without her brilliant supervisory team: 

Professor of Large Animal Surgery Pia Haubro Andersen (Swedish Agricultural University)
Professor in ethology (animal behaviour) Björn Forkman (University of Copenhagen)
European Specialist in Large Animal Surgery Casper Lindegaard (Evidensia Equine Specialist Hospital, Helsingborg, Sweden). 

Looks like a great team effort!
