New Approaches to Treating Chronic Pain: Targeting Central Sensitization


January 26, 2012, 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.


Robert Gereau, PhD

Professor of Anesthesiology, Anatomy and Neurobiology; Chief, Basic Science Division, Washington University Pain Center, St. Louis, Missouri


Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, M203
2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016


A public reception will precede this event in the VTC Cafe at 4:30 p.m.

Chronic pain conditions are largely unresponsive to treatments that are highly effective for acute pain conditions. Advances in pain science have led to the understanding that chronic pain conditions involve long-lasting changes in the way the brain processes sensory information. Dr. Gereau will discuss these changes and how they might be targeted with new types of therapies to provide effective relief for patients suffering from chronic pain.
