Researcher | Research Overview
Dr. Sieberg’s research in the area of pediatric pain has included measure development, treatment outcome, and the exploration of biopsychosocial factors contributing to persistent and chronic pain. A major focus of her research is to identify children who demonstrate amplified Central Nervous System processing of pain-related information, and who are at elevated risk for adverse pain-related outcomes and reduced benefits of pain-reducing treatments, as well as the exploration of gene-environment interactions. Dr. Sieberg's research encompasses both pre-clinical and clinical models and has been funded by the Office of Faculty Development at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard University, the Noonan Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health. She collaborates with colleagues in the Departments of Orthopedics, Adolescent Medicine, and the F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center at Boston Children's Hospital as well as at the Boston Center for Endometriosis, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Stanford University School of Medicine, and the University of Michigan.
