The school subject is: Translational pain research: from lab to clinic

Recent advances in pain research enable us to see pain as a disease of its own. In addition, we have learned with modern methods that pain alters the entire nervous system, including transduction and the emotional and cognitive responses. Although pain driven neuroplasticity remains a useful research tool, it is insufficient for filling the gap between biomedical discovery and clinical benefit. Discoveries made at the laboratory’s research bench usually have little relevance or application for patients suffering pain. Translating basic scientific findings into the clinical pain research can improve treatments for patients, increase our understanding of pain mechanisms, as well as provide new possibilities for designing successful clinical trials. This is the core of medical research today and this will be the topic of the school. Four days lectures, workshops, student’s presentations will be aimed at exploring the mechanisms and tools for deciphering maladaptive plasticity mechanisms at the origin of chronic pain. Informal, lively discussions will be organized to view possible targets and research strategies for developing curative/preventive treatments allowing the patients to improve their quality of life.

We offer two types of students activity during the school:

The first is to deliver a short presentation (slides 3-5) with the current research issues or on the difficulties in the translation of scientific knowledge for therapy in the clinic. Presentations will be the topic for discussion. These presentations will take place after the lectures in the morning and during the afternoon sessions. The second type of activity is “tutoring”, where interested students are welcome to have an individual tutoring session, which could take place in the evening after dinner. This should be announced in advance, so that we could propose the schedule of such meetings.
