Members are actively involved in undergraduate teaching, educating future doctors and basic scientists on acute and chronic pain.
Sessions include lectures as well as practical classes that examine aspects of sensory testing, pain assessment, cadaveric dissection, ultrasound and MRI imaging. Undergraduate students frequently undertake research projects within our laboratories as part of their studies. Postgraduate students are actively involved in neuroscience research both at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School and the University of Sussex. We currently have several PhD students conducting laboratory research in the pain field.
Our members frequently run courses for postgraduate students as well as clinicians that cover neuroanatomy, cadaveric dissection and ultrasound imaging. We are keen to engage the general public in our activities. As well as our involvement in the Brighton Science Festival, some of our members are actively engaged in patient groups, and regularly present their research at local and national patient events and support group meetings (for example, RSI Action, fibromyalgia UK).
If you are interested in any of these activities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
