About the Event

This is the ideal time to attend the 2019 Challenge of Chronic Pain Conference, which will showcase the most recent discoveries and potential avenues for therapies in chronic pain research and treatment. World leaders in pain research including those working in basic science, translational research and clinical therapies will present the latest and most promising findings, as well as the challenges left to overcome. Important, timely topics will include the clinical landscape of pain syndromes, mechanistic underpinnings of structural and functional plasticity in neural pathways, evidence that pain mechanisms can differ across females and males. We will also focus on the early childhood influences and trauma on development of chronic pain in later life, the need for increased rigor and transparency to identify truly translatable pain therapies, complex influences of the brain on pain perception and the potential of individual genetic analyses towards personalized pain medicine. Trainees, basic scientists, clinicians, industry developers and educators from across the globe are encouraged to participate in these discussions, which promise to increase our understanding of pain mechanisms and facilitate a path to improved therapies. Abstracts are welcome from all areas relevant to the main themes of the conference.
