We are pleased to let you know of three upcoming lectures by NCCIH-funded researchers on pain and its management, forming the Center’s Spring 2018 Integrative Medicine Research Lecture Series. All talks will take place at Lipsett Amphitheater, Building 10, on the NIH campus, and will also be offered via NIH Videocast and Facebook Live.
On Monday, March 12, at 11:00 a.m. ET, Alexander Chesler, Ph.D., will give the first talk, “Under Your Skin: Molecules and Cells for Touch and Pain.”
The somatosensory system enables us to detect touch, temperature, and painful stimuli. By studying patients with a rare, inherited disease, Dr. Chesler and his team identified a key molecule for detecting touch and proprioception, our body’s awareness of itself in space. Dr. Chesler will discuss the “sixth sense” and how recent advances in genetics and functional imaging in model systems can help shed light on mechanisms involved in acute and chronic pain.
