The Inaugural Roberto Perez Memorial Lectureship

We are proud to announce the biennial Tribute and Lectureship Program in honor of our good friend and most excellent colleague Professor Roberto Perez, an extraordinary researcher on complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Co-sponsored by the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Association of America and the CRPS Special Interest group of the IASP, this event will take place every other year during the IASP meeting.

The first event will be held on August 5, 2020 at 5pm in Amsterdam. We will honor Perez's memory, and feature a promising researcher who has exhibited outstanding research on CRPS. There will be a reception immediately following the lecture.

Applications for this lectureship are now being accepted until March 31. This opportunity is intended for early to mid-career researchers with a research emphasis in CRPS. In a 45-minute lecture, the researcher will present his/her CRPS work and relevant work in their lab, and will receive a $500 honorarium.

To apply for this lectureship, please send an email to crpsconsortium@gmail.com with:
