This Special Interest Group (SIG) is formally consituted under the By-Laws of the
Australian Pain Society Constitution, adopted 10 April 2019.
The purpose of the Basic Pain Research Special Interest Group (SIG) shall be to share, improve and promote scientific knowledge and understanding regarding the components of nociception and pain at the level of molecules and cells in animals and humans. This is to provide enough data to bridge the gap between basic and clinical research for the benefit of pain patients.
The Australian Pain Society SIG on Basic Pain Research aims to:
Must have current APS Membership to join the SIG. Annual SIG Fee: $35
