Conference on Analgesic Trials
The cost for APS CAT is $150 and includes lunch and refreshments. Preregistration is required. The event is a full day, approximately 8AM-4:30PM.
Join us for the third annual APS Conference on Analgesic Trials happening March 4, 2018, one day before the start of the Scientific Summit at the Disneyland Hotel® in Anaheim, CA. This will be chaired and moderated by Neil Singla, MD, APS Clinical Trials special interest group chair and chief scientific officer of Lotus Clinical Research.
Hundreds of pain researchers have attended the first and second annual APS-CAT conferences, discussing design and conduct of analgesic clinical trials with expert panels. Audience feedback has been overwhelmingly positive both years.

APS-CAT is a full-day conference focused on optimizing the design and conduct of analgesic clinical trials. APS-CAT involves audience members in dialogue with thought leaders in the field to disseminate the latest scientific and regulatory developments and facilitate collaboration. The conference features a panel format, with each presenter speaking for 30 minutes followed by Q & A. Our goal is to maximize the efficiency of analgesic drug development.
You can register for the full APS Summit, which offers 2 additional days of excellent scientific content, or select “Pre-Con Only”.
