Pain Therapeutics 2017

Pain Therapeutics 2017 returns to London this spring, providing a focal point to discuss new clinical advancements, therapeutic developments and strategies towards minimising opioid dependency.

Created with an expert scientific advisory board, SMi’s 17th annual Pain Therapeutics conference will hone in on the latest innovations and novel approaches to pain therapy and analgesic drugs as well as look at the practicalities of using animal models and translational biomarkers in pain research.

Aimed at an audience of scientific leaders and senior specialists in neuroscience, CNS, clinical operations and pharmacology, Pain Therapeutics 2017 will keep attendees at the forefront of medical breakthroughs to adapt to the growing need towards minimising opioid dependency and new drug discovery.

Presentations from a selection of hand-picked pharmaceutical companies currently developing novel treatments in pain, will provide delegates with an understanding on key topics such as product formulation; opioid addiction; translational pain research; and breakthroughs in drug discovery.

Interactive workshops and exclusive new findings from phase II clinical trials will be just some of the highlights at the 17th annual show when it returns to London this spring.

In the context of the 2nd HBP Student Conference, young researchers from the fields of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science receive the possibility to exchange ideas and perspectives and discuss various aspects of their particular fields of expertise relevant to the Human Brain Project. The conference offers a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events. Through working across boundaries and linking the various fields, it serves as a platform for both intra- and interdisciplinary exchange and is a great opportunity for extensive scientific discussions among peers and faculty, and also a fertile soil for new, innovative ideas. Conference structure Keynote lectures Discussion sessions Student talks Poster presentations Discussion panel Social events We are looking for original high-quality submissions containing innovative research from all fields relating to the HBP research programme. Contributions emphasising theoretical and empirical foundations are just as welcome as new approaches to specific questions concerning the Subprojects of the HBP. Finally, we particularly encourage submissions introducing new and relevant problems, concepts and ideas with the potential to inspire the research community – even if the approach is at an early stage of development. All participants may submit an abstract and will have the opportunity to present their work. Presentations will include a brief oral presentation, a poster, or both. Abstracts to be submitted before 11 October 2017. Childcare will be offered during the conference. Participants have to indicate in the registration form if this service is required.
