Image for BNA: New treatments for pain

The Edge, Sheffield – Wednesday 9th November 2022

A joint meeting of the British Neuroscience Association, Versus Arthritis, and the University of Sheffield, supported by Lilly.

This event is FREE for BNA members (with £25 refundable booking).

Neuroscience has revealed the secrets of the brain and nervous system to an extent that was beyond the realm of imagination just 10-20 years ago, let alone in 1949 when Orwell wrote his prophetic novel. Understanding pain, however, presents a unique challenge to academia, industry and medicine, being both a measurable physiological process as well as deeply personal and subjective. Given the millions of people who suffer from pain every day, wishing only, “that it should stop”, the need to find more effective treatments cannot be understated.

‘New treatments for pain’ will bring together approximately 120 people from the commercial, academic, and not-for-profit sectors to share current knowledge, identify future directions, and enable collaboration, providing delegates with meaningful and practical ways to accelerate their own work into developing treatments for pain.
