The IPRCC seeks nominations for IPRCC members from scientists, physicians and health professionals who are leaders in the field of pain research; and members of the general public who are representatives of leading research, advocacy and service organizations for individuals with pain related conditions.
The Department is soliciting nominations for one non-federal member from among scientists, physicians, and other health professionals and for three non-federal members of the general public who represent a leading research, advocacy, or service organization for people with pain-related conditions. These candidates will be considered to fill positions opened through completion of current member terms.
