PAIN talks 2015

We are inviting you to the first QNJPI PAIN talks edition, a conference consisting of short « TED »-like presentations.

The short talks will address the controversies and breakthroughs in the pain field or present inspiring testimonies about pain management.


The awardee for Best Presentation will be offered a spot at the first edition of the North American Pain School (NAPS). Bringing together leading experts in the fields of pain research and management, NAPS was developed to provide a unique educational and networking experience for the next generation of basic science and clinical pain researchers. We offer opportunities for scientific education, professional development, and connections with peers in a setting far removed from the lab and steeped in the character and culture of Quebec. NAPS will be accessible to only 30 North American top candidates yearly.
