NIH Back Pain Consortium Research Program (BACPAC)
BACPAC is a patient-centric translational research program that will support studies to dissect the components and mechanisms of chronic low back pain and integrate all new information to identify, prioritize and test new therapies targeted to specific mechanisms. The goal of this initiative is to probe the biomedical mechanisms of the disease in a biopsychosocial context using interdisciplinary methods and innovative technologies so that novel individualized targeted treatments can be developed, tested and combined for an integrated approach to eradicate chronic back pain.
A Request for Information (RFI) has been issued to solicit input from the research community and public stakeholders. For further information and to provide input, see NOT-AR-19-020.
The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) is holding a webinar to discuss ideas and suggestions for the BACPAC Research Program:
Monday October 15, 2018
3:00-5:00 PM (EDT)
For more information and to register for the webinar, see NOT-AR-19-021.
