Dr Frank Porreca is Professor of Pharmacology and Anesthesiology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson, AZ. Dr Porreca is widely published in research addressing mechanisms of chronic pain and its treatment, and the adaptive nature of brain pain modulatory circuits following injury.
Dr Porreca’s current research interests include exploration of the intersection between pain and reward pathways and discovery of molecules that can modulate these circuits for pain relief.
Dr Porreca will be presenting the Sunderland Lecture in the main auditorium on day 1, discussing “Brain circuits mediating pain and its relief”, and he will also be hosting a plenary session on day 3.
New to the program in 2015, a Meet the Speakers breakfast session will be offered to junior researchers, PhD students and post doctorate fellows. The aim of this session is to give younger scientists and clinicians an opportunity to ascertain career advice and guidance from the APS 2015 international plenary speakers. Dr Frank Porecca will be one of our special guests at this exciting event.
The APS is delighted to have Dr Frank Porreca involved in APS 2015, we hope you will be able to attend and enjoy everything this conference has to offer. To register for the 2015 Australian Pain Society 35th Annual Scientific Meeting please click on the image below.
