Description

Event Overview

Hosted by the IMB Centre for Pain Research, we invite you to the first Brisbane-wide whole-day multidisciplinary pain research symposium to be held on Friday 7 December at the Queensland Bioscience Precinct Auditorium. This student-led event brings together pain research groups from different disciplines across UQ and provides a platform for researchers at all career stages to showcase their work alongside leading national and international speakers in the field.

Our aim is to stimulate scientific discussion, collaboration and ongoing engagement to advance pain research and treatments with all sectors of the community, i.e. basic and clinical pain researchers, people living with pain-related conditions, medical practitioners and allied health professionals, academics and hospital administrators, industry representatives, government health agencies & regulatory bodies, people caring for those living with pain-related conditions and community support groups.

Instructions for submitting an abstract for a poster presentation or short talk are further below (FAQs). Postgraduate research candidates (Hons, Masters, PhD), early career researchers (ECRs) and clinicians are particularly encouraged to submit an abstract for the symposium. Generous prizes for the Best Posters and Best Poster Talks will be available!

Abstract submissions are also welcome from hospital administrators, industry representatives, government health agencies & regulatory bodies, and community support groups.

The draft program below will be updated as further details are confirmed.
