UTCSP research activities, educational outreach, and knowledge dissemination events (e.g., awards, trainee events, lectures and seminars) are considered highlights by Centre members in building skills and capacity relative to pain mechanisms and management.
UTCSP lab crawl
Nov 24, 2022: Crawl through three very different pain research labs, meet the experts, and have an interactive learning experience. Each tour will last ~45 min (+15min commute between labs). After the lab tours, the groups will crawl their way to a local pub to socialize (~5:00pm-7:00pm). Apps will be provided. This event is free. Registration is required- deadline Nov 14.
