Understanding Pain Mechanisms is the theme of the American Pain Society’s Scientific Summit, www.americanpainsociety.org, March 4-6 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. The conference brings together leading pain researchers and clinicians to explore biopsychosocial mechanisms that influence pain perception and treatment response discovered through clinical, translational and basic science pain research.
“The APS Scientific Summit provides an opportunity to depart from the traditional annual scientific meeting format using a more intimate venue that will provide increased opportunities for informal interactions and networking,” said Tonya Palermo, Ph.D., scientific program chair and professor of anesthesiology and pain medicine, Seattle Children’s Research Institute. “Our goal is to create a comprehensive, shared meeting experience to fully explore pain mechanisms through themed plenary and symposia sessions, networking and panel discussions, award lectures, poster sessions, SIG meetings, and exhibits, packed into a two-day agenda.”
