Lesley Colvin, ChB PhD FRCA FFPMRCA FRCP, will open the congress with a lecture on chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathic pain. Martin Schmelz, MD will discuss pain and itch and Aaron Diantonio, MD, PhD will present evidence that inhibiting the SARM1 pathway can prevent the development of peripheral neuropathy, describe the emerging mechanistic understanding of the axon degeneration program, and discuss how these mechanistic insights may be translated to the clinic for the prevention and treatment of peripheral neuropathy and other neurodegenerative disorders.
Nadine Attal, MD, PhD, Rohini Kuner, PhD, A. Vania Apkarian, PhD, Stephen Waxman, MD, PhD, and Makoto Tsuda, MD will also give plenary lectures throughout the congress.
