New Treatments for Pain- Erl Wood, Surrey

BNA Event - 14th May 2020


‘New treatments for pain’ will bring together people from the commercial, academic, and not-for-profit sectors to share current knowledge, identify future directions, and enable collaboration, providing delegates with meaningful and practical ways to accelerate their own work.

The day will incorporate presentations, networking and discussion sessions to share knowledge and increase collaboration in pain research 


The day will start with an insight into the lived experience of pain, via a conversation between a pain clinician and their patient. This will lead into a session reflecting back at how pain treatments have developed and then bringing us right up to date with the current situation in drug development and research.

We will go on to enjoy a smorgasbord of rapid-fire talks giving a taste of exciting research from around the UK and in different sectors. For instance, what do we know about dementia and pain, autoimmunity, biomarkers and big data?

A key component of the meeting will be the opportunity to dig deeper into areas of individual interest, via facilitated small group discussions. This will allow delegates to direct the focus into areas as they wish.  Group discussions will be captured during the meeting and key outcomes shared.

Through the day there will be time to meet people and chat over coffee breaks, lunch, and a drinks reception.

The programme is being led by a team of industry and academic experts who will also be leading brainstorming breakout sessions on the day, including:

  • Craig Bullock - Versus Arthritis
  • Anne Cooke - BNA
  • Jenny Laird - Eli Lilly
  • Emanuele Sher - Eli Lily
