In order to nurture the next generation of researchers for them to gain confidence and visibility, the Pain Network grants travel awards for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to attend conferences related to pain, neuroscience or related disciplines.

How to get our your next generation of Canadian researchers motivated? SHOW OFF YOUR RESULTS!

Have them make their research shine, and have them discussing with colleagues to launch new collaborations.

As a QPRN member, you supervise them so they produce good results.

In exchange, the QPRN selects the most motivated candidates and we support them to spread their work abroad!

A mission to which we are dedicated at the Pain Network.
