The NC3Rs, the British Pharmacological Society and the Physiological Society are hosting a joint symposium in central London on 11 October 2012 to discuss opportunities for developing new and better models of experimental pain, with reduced reliance on animal models.

Programme
The meeting will be chaired by Professor Stephen McMahon, King's College London, and confirmed speakers include:

    Professor Andrew Rice, Imperial College London
    Neuropathic pain: Refinement and enhancing the clinical relevance of rodent in vivo models
    Dr Nick Andrews, Harvard Medical School
    From reflex to voluntary assays: can we improved clinical translation of analgesics?
    Dr David Borsook, Harvard Medical School
    Imaging across analgesic drug development: A missing link?
    Professor Paul Flecknell, Newcastle University
    Pain or nociception what do our animals model?
    Dr Emily Sena, University of Edinburgh
    Systematic review and meta-analysis to improve animal models of pain.
    Dr Nathalie Percie du Sert, NC3Rs
    The ARRIVE guidelines
    Dr Lynne Sneddon, University of Liverpool
    Exploring the use of fish as models of nociception
    Dr Sean Sweeney, University of York
    Using Drosophila nociceptive responses to model sensory neuropathy
    Dr Kathryn Chapman, NC3Rs
    Using CRACK IT to generate new models of experimental pain
    Dr Mohammed Nassar, University of Sheffield
