Pain in Animals Workshop 2017


Nov 29, 2017 to Nov 30, 2017
8:00 AM until 5:00 PM


The proposed meeting will involve National Institutes of Health pain researchers, Industry, Food and Drug Administration and Academic researchers. We propose to bring the strengths of all these partners together to discuss the current state of pain measurement in animals, and to formulate a roadmap of research and development priorities for the future. The primary goals of the meeting will be:

  1. Discussing the current status (recent advances and current roadblocks) of long-standing (chronic) pain measurement in companion animals from the perspective of veterinary therapeutic development and also translational research
  2. Defining a consensus list of priorities for future research (roadmap).

From this meeting, a white paper will be produced that will outline a consensus list of priorities for future research. Secondary goals will be to outline collaborative mechanisms for achieving the prioritized research and development of tools.
