NCI/NIH Pain Consortium Science Writers' Seminar

What: National Cancer Institute/NIH Pain Consortium Science Writers' Seminar

Chronic pain from conditions like arthritis, migraines, injuries and cancer affects millions of people worldwide, depriving them of their well-being and productivity. While existing drugs and other therapies can ease discomfort for some people, new approaches are needed to help those who still suffer. This seminar will introduce reporters to some of the latest therapies for pain, including a technique that has been dubbed a molecular scalpel. Leaders in the field of pain management will present their research, and a cancer patient will discuss her experience living with severe chronic pain.
