The UC San Diego Clinical and Translational Research Institute (CTRI) and Nature Magazine would like to invite you to attend the 5th Annual Frontiers of Clinical Investigation Symposium on October 14-16, 2010. The theme of the meeting will be “Pain 2010”, which will explore innovative approaches to bridge laboratory investigation and clinical research in pain.

Multi-disciplinary sessions will include basic, translational, and clinical presentations on cutting edge research to provide an integrated approach to understanding the pathogenesis and treatment of pain, as well as novel clinical trial designs for development of new therapeutic agents. This symposium will provide unique insights and tools for optimizing and streamlining clinical investigation from discovery to drug approval.

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

â– Describe emerging concepts in clinical investigation and translational research in pain
â– Define areas of controversy and provide best evidence for each approach
â– Identify innovative approaches to bridge bench to bedside and enhance clinical investigation, including novel clinical trial designs to evaluate new therapeutic agents
â– Acquire tools for optimizing and streamlining clinical investigation from discovery to development to application
â– Assess pathophysiology of pain pathways in human disease
