Dr. Mackey completed his BSE and MSE in Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Arizona where he subsequently earned his medical degree. He completed his anesthesiology residency and pain management fellowship at Stanford and then joined the faculty. He is the Associate Director of the Pain Management Division and Co-Director of the Stanford Pain Research and Clinical Center—an interdisciplinary initiative to bring together researchers, clinicians, engineers, patients and their advocacy groups, and industry to work toward solving the problem of chronic pain. He directs an NIH funded lab (Stanford Neuroimaging and Pain Lab) focusing on the neural processing of pain and neuronal plasticity in patients with chronic pain. Dr. Mackey’s state-of-the-art work integrates multiple scientific disciplines to demonstrate the impact of pain on the central nervous system. His work has generated significant interest in the media and the scientific community because of the insight it provides which was barely imaginable a decade ago.
