The Australian Pain Society recently held their annual conference (and what a conference it was) and interviewed their keynote speakers. This is the first of three – Prof Jeff Mogil on the nature and nurture of pain.
Professor Jeffrey Mogil is currently the E.P. Taylor Professor of Pain Studies and the Canada Research Chair in the Genetics of Pain at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Dr Mogil has authored over 170 journal articles and book chapters since 1992, and he has given over 220 invited lectures in that same period. He currently serves as a Section Editor at the journal Pain, and he chaired the Scientific Program Committee of the 13th World Congress on Pain held in 2010.
