Neuro-Immune Interactions in Pain – The Basics and Beyond

Neuro-immune interactions have been a prominent topic for research in chronic pain over many years. This session will present some of the classical experiments that have been performed in this area and demonstrate why macrophages and microglia have been pain biology’s favourite immune cell types to date. Attendees will also be introduced to more recent findings, such as the interaction between neurons and stromal cells, and the importance of sex differences in immune cell function.
