Event Description: 

The NIH Workshop: Discovery and Validation of Biomarkers to Develop Non-Addictive Therapeutics for Pain is focused on the discovery and validation of biomarkers and endpoints that will ultimately facilitate the development of safer therapies for people with pain.  It is part of the trans-NIH HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-term) initiative and is a collaborative effort between NINDS, NCI, NIAAA, NIBIB, NIDCR, NIDA, NIGMS, NINR, NCCIH and OBSSR.  The intent of the workshop is to:

  1. inform the community about current regulatory standards and guidelines for the development of biomarkers and endpoints,
  2. evaluate the state of the science in pain biomarker development
  3. explore potential scientific and collaborative approaches that could facilitate the discovery and validation of robust biomarkers and endpoints that would provide the tools necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of pain conditions.
