WELCOME TO TRANSLATIONAL NEUROBIOLOGY OF THE PAIN SYSTEM XXV: PAIN AND NEUROPLASTICITY IN THE TRANSITION FROM ACUTE TO PROLONGED PAIN
This is the twenty-fifth annual international Ph.D. course on the translational neurobiology of the pain system. The purpose of the course is to introduce different aspects of the neurobiology of the pain system and to initiate new co-operation in interdisciplinary pain research. This year the course will focus on translational aspects of pain and neuroplasticity, especially how such mechanisms can be assessed, and their manifestations in experimental, acute and chronic pain conditions.
The lectures will be given by staff from Center for Neuroplasticity and Pain (CNAP), Aalborg University, by invited international key scientists within the area, and relevant industrial partners.
The course will be held together with the FRESCO@CNAP workshop that has a special focus on transferable skills and career perspectives for PhDs within pain research. Several of the international key scientists are affiliated to the FRESCO@CNAP PhD programme as partners.
Selected papers and book chapters will be announced to the participants shortly before the course.
A basic understanding of pain mechanisms, for update see Textbook of Pain, Section 1: Neurobiology of Pain.
The course will end with a multiple-choice evaluation with questions related to all topics of the course.
A participation fee of DKK 750.- will be charged for catering and dinner.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
