Visceral pain: what it is and how can it be conquered?

Mon 12 September

McCrum Lecture Theatre

In 2021, with funding from the Medical Research Council, Versus Arthritis, Eli Lilly and AstraZeneca, the Advanced Discovery of Visceral Analgesics by Neuroimmune Targets And the Genetics of Extreme human phenotypes (ADVANTAGE) pain consortium was set up to bring patients, clinicians and scientists together from across the UK to discover the underlying psychological, clinical and biological mechanisms of visceral pain.

This event will feature several 5-minute long elevator pitches from patient representatives, clinicians and scientists, talking about their roles in and ambitions for ADVANTAGE, before moving on to a Q&A panel discussion with the audience.

This event is free to attend and will be of interest to anyone with a personal or professional interest in the experience of visceral pain, the mechanisms that drive it, as well as its management.

Some members of the ADVANTAGE consortium were involved in making the film Gut Reaction a few years ago, which may be of interest to those attending the event. The film looks at the lives of those with bowel conditions and the work of scientists and clinicians to try and improve their lives.

Cost: Free
