Event summary: 2019 Pain in Animals Workshop: Cross-species measurement of acute pain

Event details: The workshop is dedicated to discussing the measurement of acute pain – a critical prerequisite to treating pain clinically, and using animals as models.
From the website you will be able to get an overview of the aims and the agenda.
The symposium will be held at the Natcher Conference Center (Building 45) in the Auditorium on the campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, Maryland from October 2-3, 2019.
The meeting is being funded through a grant from the Mayday Fund:
This meeting will bring together researchers, clinicians/practitioners in human and veterinary medicine, industry, and the regulatory authorities with the primary goals of:
1.         Discussing the current status (recent advances and current roadblocks) of acute pain measurement across species
2.         Defining a consensus list of priorities for future research (roadmap) to improve our ability to measure acute pain across the species.
Call for Posters: We are accepting submissions for posters: We encourage you to submit an abstract on work focusing on any aspect of the measurement of acute pain in animals, or the use of animals as naturally occurring disease models in translational acute pain research. Abstracts are due on July 15th, 2019 at 11pm CST.
Abstracts will be reviewed for appropriate content, and individuals promptly notified of acceptance.
The organizing committee would be very grateful if you might be able to distribute the information to your colleagues.
