Aims and Objectives
This workshop aims to:
- Discuss the animal models used to study BPS/IC, and the limits of how they mimic the disease
- To discuss how chronic pain and other symptoms may be evaluated in the BPS/IC animal models.
- To discuss the available bioinformatic tools to study BPS/IC
- To understand some basic notions of computational analysis
- To discuss current molecular pathways and biomarkers for BPS/IC subtypes
- At the end of the workshop the attendees will know the available animal models of BPS/IC and choose among them the best to test the hypothesis at stake.
- At the end of the workshop the attendees will understand where translational research is needed to fill unmet needs in the fields of diagnosis and treatment.
- At the end of the workshop the attendees will acquire basic notions of computational analysis and will recognise the importance of bioinformatic tools in BPS/IC basic and clinical research.
