Belgian Pain Society Young Researchers Day

Seminar and meetings
Early 2019, the board of the Belgian Pain Society (BPS) took the decision to organize a multidisciplinary “BPS Young Researchers Day” that would bring together the many researchers and clinicians having an interest in basic or clinical research in the field of pain in Belgium. The first objective of the meeting was to provide early-stage researchers and clinicians a unique opportunity to get to know each other, to learn about their research, and to exchange ideas and to interact. The second objective was to promote “bench-to-bedside” collaborations between basic researchers and clinicians. For this reason, although all scientific communications will be made by junior fellows (PhD students, postdoctorate researchers, clinicians in training), more senior researchers and clinicians were invited to attend this multidisciplinary event. Another decision of the board was to hand over the scientific organization of the event to a group of junior fellows, and to let them decide the meeting format and program that they felt would be optimal to promote interdisciplinary interactions. This scientific committee was constituted in May, and composed of seven highly motivated young researchers from UCLouvain, UAntwerpen, KULeuven, UGent, UHasselt, ULiège and VUB.
