Call for Papers: Mapping the Pain Landscape–From Molecules to Medicine

You are invited to submit papers on the topic of the Society of General Physiologists’ 76th Annual Symposium: “Mapping the Pain Landscape–From Molecules to Medicine”, to be published throughout the year and highlighted in a special issue. Guest editors of the special issue are Frank Bosmans of Ghent University, Theanne Griffith of University of California, Davis, and Valeria Vásquez of University of Tennessee Health Science Center. They are assisted in handling the reviews of submitted manuscripts by JGP Editor-in-Chief David Eisner of Manchester University and JGP Associate Editor Jeanne Nerbonne of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

JGP welcomes submissions that focus on increasing our understanding of the role of various membrane components in pain detection and processing. We also welcome research that addresses challenges associated with connecting fundamental research to human health and treatments of disease. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, ion channel structures and biophysical properties, drug discovery techniques and practical applications, neurophysiological investigations of pain circuits, etiology-specific pain mechanisms and rodent models, the development of cutting-edge techniques to study sensory perception, and the use of human tissues in pain research.

Submissions of Research Articles, Communications, Hypotheses, or Methods and Approaches are specifically invited. The deadline for submission for inclusion in the special issue is December 15, 2023. Authors can now publish in JGP free of charge or pay a reduced fee to make their articles immediately Open Access—learn more about our No Fee-Low Fee policy.

Please note that the special issue will be published online as papers are accepted, minimizing the time from acceptance to publication. During the submission process, please indicate that this is for the Mapping the Pain Landscape–From Molecules to Medicine special issue.
