As part of the annual meeting of the NervClub (a study group for peripheral nerves), a symposium on the main topic of neuropathic pain will be held in Würzburg this year. Professor Dr. med. Mirko Pham, event organizer and Director of the Institute for Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at the University Hospital of Würzburg, cordially invites all those interested in the field and who are dedicated to basic and/or clinical research to attend the conference at February 23, 2024.
During the symposium, distinguished experts from across Germany will meet at the Rudolf Virchow Center on University Hospital campus. Focusing on the complex theme of "Understanding and Treating Neuropathic Pain," the latest insights and discoveries will be discussed, offering an interdisciplinary view on the topic. Fundamental topics will also be covered, from understanding the genesis of peripheral nerve pain and disease models, to advancements in radiological detection methods, successful therapeutic approaches, and options for personalized treatment.
Introductory Lectures by Prof. Dr. med. Claudia Sommer and Prof. Dr. med. Heike Rittner
The introductory lectures will be delivered by Prof. Dr. med. Claudia Sommer and Prof. Dr. med. Heike Rittner. Both lead the Clinical Research Group 5001, ResolvePAIN, and are internationally recognized for their expertise in pain management, extending beyond the borders of Germany. Since November 2023, Prof. Rittner held the distinction of being the sole chair in Pain Medicine in Germany. The speakers will focus their presentations on the clinical concept of neuropathic pain.
