Allan I. Basbaum

PhD

This speaker has many years of experience studying spinal cord circuits through which acute and chronic pain are generated as well as mechanisms through which a variety of analgesics exert their effects. In addition to extensive studies of opioid actions in the brainstem and spinal cord, his recent studies used GABAergic progenitor cell transplants, in the spinal cord and anterior cingulate cortex, to treat preclinical models of neuropathic pain. The speaker served as Editor-in-Chief of Pain and has a particular interest in the translation of preclinical pain research to the clinic. The speaker is a member of the United States National Academy of Medicine, the National Academy of Sciences and is Fellow of the Royal Society in the United Kingdom.
