Professor Paul Rolan Professor Paul Rolan is an Adelaide medical graduate who has been working in the UK for the past 20 years. He was medical director of Medeval, a clinical pharmacology contract research organisation owned by the University of Manchester. He was principal investigator in over 600 clinical pharmacology studies and in the later years had a heavy focus on evaluating potential new therapies for pain, including the development and refinement of a number of experimental pain models that were used to profile new compounds. He arrived back in Adelaide last year to take up the post of Professor of Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Adelaide. His main research interest is in the development of new compounds for neuropathic pain and how to deal with opioidrelated hyperalgesia. He also works at the Pain Management Unit at the Royal Adelaide Hospital principally seeing patients with problematic headache.
