On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, NCCIH and other agencies at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will sponsor a workshop on “Natural Products and Pain: The Search for Novel Nonopioid Analgesics.” The event will be held on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Registration to attend in person is free and open to the first 80 online registrants.
The workshop is targeted to researchers engaged in basic and mechanistic research in the fields of natural products or pain signaling. The goal is to facilitate the identification of novel nonopioid natural products with efficacious and nonaddictive analgesic properties. Research barriers for the study of natural products for pain treatment and management will also be discussed.
