Promoting Cross Talk and Inclusiveness in Spine Research

The Spine Section meeting will have two distinct parts: an educational component and a research component.

A panel discussion will follow their presentations. The research part will feature speed poster presentations and short presentations by the 2023 Travel Fellowship and Peter Roughley award winners. Three speakers will present research talks on the topic: The Immune System in Chronic Back Pain, which will be followed by a panel discussion and a networking event at Café Sevilla.
