Annual award of the Belgian Pain Society 2015

The annual research prize of the Belgian Pain Society was attributed this year to Prof. Joris Vriens. Dr. Vriens is assistant professor in the Dept of Oran Systems and Head of the lab for Gynaecology & Experimental Obstetrics at the KU Leuven. His work entitled "TRPM3 as a target for treatment of inflammatory pain” represents a proof-of-concept, extending on his earlier work and illustrates the role of TRPM3 as a nociceptor in the somatosensory system. The results of this ongoing and very promising study highlight TRPM3 as a potential target for the development of new clinical applications/treatment on humans.
