Symposium: A Precision Medicine Approach to Pain

Thursday, November 30, 2017
8:00am – 6:00pm

UConn Health
The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine

As many as 100 million adults in the U.S. are affected by episodes of chronic pain. Pain management increasingly relies on the use of opioids, a strategy that has contributed to the current national crisis of drug abuse and associated risk of mortality. The problem is exacerbated by the paucity of science that provides guidance for health care providers for targeted approaches to the treatment of individual patients. This symposium aims to bring together some of the leading experts in pain science to highlight precisionmedicine approaches to the study and treatment of pain.
