Sagol Brain Institute and Institute of Pain Medicine Tel Aviv Medical Center and Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Israel. President of the Israel Pain Association

Haggai Sharon, MD PhD, President of the Israel Pain Association, is a specialist in Internal medicine and Pain Medicine. He is a senior physician at the Institute of Pain Medicine in Tel Aviv Medical Centre and a researcher at the Sagol Brain Institute in Tel Aviv University, where he completed a PhD in neuroscience and currently leads the Laboratory for #Consciousness & Neurosychopharmacology. He has also recently completed a clinical research fellowship at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Pain Management and Neuromodulation Centre in London.

Dr. Sharon’s current work focuses on research into what builds the subjective experience of the self in health and disease. He is especially interested in altered states of consciousness, neuropsychopharmacology and the neurobiology of pain, and explores methods that can rapidly change this aversive experience in a noninvasive, brain-focused and patient-tailored manner. To that aim he combines advanced functional brain imaging techniques, pharmacotherapy, noninvasivebrain stimulation and brain modulation approaches in healthy individuals and patients.
