Sponsor: 
The Wellcome Trust
Description: 

This new Wellcome Trust conference will discuss recent discoveries and current challenges in pain research, with a focus on translating basic research insights into new therapies. We will highlight key advances in our understanding of peripheral and central pain mechanisms, pathways and processes; explore the clinical landscape of chronic pain and pain syndromes; and address innovative approaches in target validation in animal and human studies, and their translation into novel therapeutic interventions. 

 

This meeting is aimed at scientists, clinicians, and those working in industry or on translational research, interested in understanding chronic pain and improving the process from mechanism to therapy. We welcome the submission of abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted. To facilitate a highly interactive conference, the number of places available will be limited to 150 participants; therefore, early registration is recommended. A draft program is available for this meeting.
