Dr Manasi Murthy Mittinty is a medical trained pain scientist based in Pain management research institute at the Royal North Shore Hospital. She works closely with (inter)national research teams to understand meaning associated with the experience of pain from culture, belief’s perspective. Her research explores mechanistic possibilities of shared psychosocial processes (especially dyadic coping, fear and stigma) and how they influence experience of pain. Her research focuses on harnessing this information in identifying potential treatment points to enhance support networks for patients and their families. Dr Mittinty has contributed to her specialty through her involvement with various international collaborative projects, journal articles, and various conference presentations. She has received numerous awards recognising her leadership including the prestigious Australian Government funded Endeavour Post-doctoral Research Fellowship (2018). She also co-chairs the Sex, Gender and Pain, a special interest group of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) and is an active 2019 Lancet Global Burden of Disease Collaborator for musculoskeletal disease. She is committed to Pain Education and routinely facilitates postgraduate and short courses, educational seminars, and CBT webinars for PMRI.

Manasi Murthy identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
