From the Secretariat
IASP honors the memory of Gisele Guilbaud, MD, DSc (France) who
served on the IASP Council from 1987-1993. Gisele Guilbaud was an
internationally recognized prolific neuroscientist who carried out
pioneering studies on the central mechanisms of pain for a period of
more than 35 years. She is very well known for her many seminal
neurophysiological and neuropharmacological studies on spinal cord,
brainstem, thalamus and cortex with a particular focus on thalamus. She
was one of the first to develop important animal models of inflammatory
and neuropathic pain. She was a close associate of Dr. Jean Marie Besson
and trained many pain researchers in her lab in Paris.
