Discovering novel & effective pain treatments

About the event

We are SO excited to welcome Dr. Kirsty Bannister to Le Pub

Kirsty will be talking about the reality of discovering novel and effective pain-relieving treatments through performing bench to beside translational research.

Chronic pain affects up to 20% of the adult population and can occur in the presence or absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage. ‘Nothing is more unique than our experience of pain and the idea that the same stimulus could evoke a different pain sensation in different individuals has always fascinated me’.

‘There have been great improvements in our understanding of pain physiology and pathophysiology over the years, but why hasn’t this translated to a met clinical analgesic need? By discussing the ways in which we currently assess nociception and pain in non-human and human experimental models, we will slowly unravel the intricacies and challenges of treating persistent pain in varied patient groups’.

This is going to be an incredible Le Pub Homebrew!
