Animal Pain PhD course, Aarhus, Denmark
5th Mar 2018 - 9th Mar 2018
In March 2018 (March 5-9), Aarhus University and University of Copenhagen offers a residential PhD course on Animal Pain organized by Mette S. Herskin and Björn Forkman, aiming to give PhD students an overview of the concept of animal pain from a biological perspective. The course will be held near Copenhagen, Denmark.
The course is based on presentations and lectures by internationally recognized pain researchers and practitioners combined with participants presenting relevant parts of their PhD projects. The course involves a combination of group work (discussions of classic aspects of pain biology and its interpretation) and plenary discussions. The three invited speakers are
1) Professor Craig B. Johnson, Massey University, New Zealand: What is pain and who feels it - from fetus to the end of life?
2) Professor Robert Elwood, Queens University Belfast, United Kingdom: Comparative aspects of animal pain - how can we detect it?
3) Associate Professor Klas Abelson, University of Copenhagen, Denmark: The use of animal models to develop pain-relieving drugs
PhD students have first priority, but non-students are also welcomed. See course details and information about registration at: http://projects.au.dk/animal-pain/
