This past February, the Rita Allen Foundation named their 2021 class of Award in Pain Scholars, celebrating four early-career leaders in the biomedical sciences whose research holds exceptional promise for revealing new pathways to understand and treat chronic pain. IASP and PRF are excited to host two webinars, featuring two 2021 Award in Pain Scholars each, to learn more about their work to expand the understanding of chronic pain and its widespread societal impact.
In Part 2, presentations will be given by:
-- Gregory Corder, PhD, University of Pennsylvania, USA
-- Gwendolyn Hoben, MD, PhD, Medical College of Wisconsin, USA
Using Mismatched Nerves to Better Understand and Treat Residual and Phantom Limb Pain in Amputees
Targeted muscle reinnervation surgery was developed to improve prosthetic control for amputees. However, these mismatched nerve connections and their effects on amputation-related pain may give broader insight to how peripheral nerve regeneration and reinnervation interact in neuropathic pain.
This session will be moderated by:
-- Jordan McCall, PhD, MPH, Washington University in St. Louis, USA
