Scandinavian Association for the Study of Pain Congress, "From Cells to Societies: What do we not know about pain?"
April 3 – April 5, 2019
The aim of this conference will be to identify major research questions in the field of pain, in particular questions that transcend traditional disciplinary and methodological boundaries. Speakers will be challenged to go beyond the state of the art and outside their comfort zone to identify the major challenges and knowledge gaps in their field. The congress will feature two innovative concepts. We will have one separate workshop for patient and public representatives, and a special session for senior researchers presenting their research groups in a Resource market.
