Canadian Peripheral Nerve Research Collaborative (CPNRC) Symposium

2023-10-21 @ 08:00 - 17:00

cpnrc symposiumThe first Canadian Peripheral Nerve Research Collaborative (CPNRC) Symposium on October 21 in London Ontario. This symposium will bring together stakeholders from across Canada to form a grass root network supporting peripheral nerve research. Basic scientists, clinicians and clinical researchers will be showcasing their innovative work on peripheral nerve regeneration, with the goal of translating promising new treatments from bench to bedside that will help to improve functional outcomes for patients with peripheral nerve injury.
World class speakers at the conference will include:
  • Freda Miller: Peripheral nerves and the control of mammalian tissue regeneration
  • Raj Midha: Schwann cell therapies for nerve repair
  • Mike Hendry: Epidermal growth factor receptor
  • Doug Zochodne: Molecular targets to accelerate nerve regeneration
  • Kirsty Boyd: End-to-side nerve transfers
  • Valerie Verge: Acute intermittent hypoxia to enhance nerve regeneration
  • Adam Johnston: Schwann cells, unexpected drivers of tissue repair
  • Chistine Webber: Conditioning electrical stimulation on nerve regeneration following nerve transfer surgery
  • Andrew Puszynski: Touch processing in tactile neurons in primates
  • Dominique Tremblay: Peripheral nerve transfers in patients with spinal cord injury
This meeting is supported by CIHR and will be held in conjunction with the clinically focused 7th Canadian Peripheral Nerve Symposium. For those of you also attending the clinical meeting on the preceding day on Oct 20, the registration fee for the Research Symposium will only be $75. Otherwise, the full registration fee is $100. This will cover an evening reception following the symposium as well. Full details will be found and online registration can be done through the following link:
