Diving into research at Experimental Biology Conference 2018

Loma Linda University Health Neuropathic Therapy Center contributes innovative research at the 2018 conference.

Time flies by when you’re having fun! I can’t believe that a year ago we were opening the doors to the new Neuropathic Therapy Center. Fast forward to the last few months and our office has never been busier.

Last month, the Neuropathic Therapy Center had the exciting opportunity to participate in the Experimental Biology 2018 Conference presented by the Federation of American Societies For Experimental Biology. It was an incredible experience for our team to contribute the latest research we are studying to an international crowd of scientists, researchers and industry professionals seeking expert knowledge.

The San Diego Convention Center was an international marketplace for collaboration, education and explorative discussions as more than 14,000 researchers were in attendance.

During the conference, our team had the opportunity to answer questions and share the latest advancements in Intraneural Facilitation or INF to a variety of industry professionals. Our poster presentation explored the acute effects INF has on idiopathic and chemotherapy induced nerve pain.

Our team at the Neuropathic Therapy Center, including Ron Coleman, PT, DPT, CSCS and Jay Alido, have made tremendous contributions to our ongoing research. I’d like to thank the School of Allied Health Professions for their continued support and leadership. It would not have been possible to attend such a remarkable conference and share my passion for helping others without them. 

It was an honor to have Dean Jackson, JD, MSW, from the School of Allied Health Professions join us in San Diego as well. He expressed great interest in our contribution to the event. 

“Our presence at the poster presentation speaks to the interest in what Dr. Bussell is developing and the collaboration with the School of Allied Health Professions,”
 Jackson said. “With the oversight of Dr. Lee Berk, associate dean for research affairs at the School of Allied Health Professions, we look forward to continued study of Dr. Bussell’s idea and other opportunities to present.”

I’d like to also thank the leadership of Loma Linda University Medical Center for their support of our research at the Neuropathic Therapy Center.

Please continue to follow us on our journey as we make new strides in treating neuropathic pain. You can always read the latest tips and updates at ntc.lluh.org/blog.
