Introducing the 78th Annual Thomas Cawthron Memorial Lecture keynote speaker, Dr Charles Berde, Senior Associate in Pain Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital and Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School.
Dr Berde’s talk, 'Revolutionising post-operative pain relief' will examine several recent medical advances including his work with Nelson’s Cawthron Institute to develop the world’s first algae-derived anaesthetic neosaxitoxin. There will also be short presentations from Cawthron scientists Dr Johan Svenson and Andy Selwood about the potential of bioactive compounds, and Cawthron's work to develop a reliable method of production for the compound neosaxitoxin. The presentations will be followed by a live audience Q&A session facilitated by event MC Jehan Casinader.
