   Following the success of the first symposium on Synaptic Plasticity in
   Pain held at King's College London, Abcam is pleased to announce a
   follow-up symposium to be held over two days in Spring 2011, in Paris,

   The meeting will cover various aspects of pain including:

     *  Inflammatory and neuropathic pain

     *  Bone cancer and visceral pain

     *  New models of persistent pain
