unspecifiedThe Thompson Family Foundation Initiative at Columbia held its first annual Symposium on CIPN and Sensory Neuroscience on Friday 13th May.

The keynote speaker, Guido Cavaletti, [Professor, Head, Experimental Neurology Unit, University of Milano-Bicocca] addressed the issue of approaching such a difficult and uncharted research program, outlining several different models.

Columbia’s Dawn Hershman took a ‘step back’ and talked about the practical complications of designing trials involving cancer patients.

Tom Schwartz [Professor of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School] gave a detailed talk on paclitaxel mechanisms in cultured DRGs.

Geoffrey Woods [Professor, Cambridge Institute for Medical Research] departing from the script, looked at the genetics of pain from the standpoint of that subset of the population who cannot fell pain.
