"Chronic pain is a very prevalent condition and it is estimated that one out of five Europeans suffers from chronic pain”, thus explains Bart Morlion, President-Elect of the European Pain Federation EFIC®. “Keeping the demographic changes in mind, we are strongly dependent on the finding for novel and innovative treatment options. I am convinced that results from these young scientists’ research projects can significantly contribute to improve pain management in Europe”.
