He obtained his MD and PhD from Harvard Medical School, did neurosurgical residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and did a fellowship in movement disorders surgery at Emory University with Drs. Roy Bakay, Jerrold Vitek, and Mahlon Delong. He was recruited to UCSF in 1998 to launch a clinical and research program in deep brain stimulation. Dr. Starr and UCSF neurologist Dr. Jill Ostrem are the directors of a multidisciplinary clinic for comprehensive care of patients with movement disorders. His NIH funded research addresses: 1) Brain network abnormalities underlying motor and nonmotor features of movement disorders. 2) Mechanisms of therapeutic deep brain stimulation. 3) The use of totally implantable neural interfaces for long term brain recording and adaptive DBS. The laboratory website is https://starrlab.ucsf.edu. Michael D. Fox (Boston, MA/US) Michael D. Fox, MD, PhD, is the founding Director of the Center for Brain Circuit Therapeutics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. He is also the inaugural Raymond D. Adams Distinguished Chair of Neurology and the Kaye Family Research Director of Psychiatric Brain Stimulation. He completed a degree in Electrical Engineering at Ohio State University, an MD and PhD at Washington University in St. Louis, and Neurology Residency and Movement Disorders Fellowship at Mass Gen Brigham. Clinically, he specializes in the use of invasive and noninvasive brain stimulation for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases. Dr. Fox’s research focuses on developing new and improved treatments for brain disease by understanding brain circuits and the effects of neuromodulation. His papers have been cited over 36,000 times and he has won awards across the fields of neurology, psychiatry, and brain stimulation. Honors include the inaugural Trailblazer Prize for Clinician Scientists from the NIH, a single award across all medical specialties for advances in translational research. Eric Yttri (Pittsburgh, PA/US) Eric Yttri, PhD is the Eberly Family Development Chair of Biological Science at Carnegie Mellon University. His lab utilizes a partnership between technique development and experimentation to establish a blueprint for the circuit mechanisms of movement. Notably, using a novel closed-loop stimulation paradigm, he discovered that both of the opponent pathways of the basal ganglia are capable of vigor control, but only via positive or negative reinforcement, respectively (Yttri and Dudman, Nature 2016). To explore these findings more deeply his group uses largescale recordings of corticobasal ganglia dynamics and machine learning to understand motor control and paradoxical kinesia. He is the recipient of several awards, including from the Whitehall and Brain Research Foundations, and is the current co-chair of the Allen Institute Next Generation Leaders Council.

Chairs Thomas Stieglitz and Takashi DY. Kozai Vice Chairs Jack W. Judy and Stephanie P. Lacour Applications for this meeting must be submitted by February 13, 2022. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available due to cancellations. Conference Description Neuroelectronic interfaces in the central, peripheral and autonomous nervous systems are the bedrock of brain-computer interface, neuromodulation and bioelectronics medicine treatments that can provide functional restoration in persons with motor and sensory dysfunction, therapies in neuronal disorders as well as symptom relief in persons with intractable neural diseases and alternatives to pharmacological treatment in widespread diseases. While many devices have been deployed in the clinical environment, there are still many engineering and neuroscientific challenges to realizing the full potential of neuroelectronic interfaces and their translation into broad clinical practice that range from stable, life-long recording electrode interfaces to deciphering the neural code and achieving closed-loop neuromodulation on a patient- and circadian-specific scales. The 2022 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Neuroelectronic Interfaces is focused on catalyzing innovation at the confluence of multiple disciplines for engineering and utilizing next generation of interfaces. In ecology, "edge effects" are defined as the unexpected and divergent innovations that occur at the physical boundary of multiple ecosystems. The neuroelectronic interface field has long benefited from the edge effect at the boundaries of neuroscience, electrical engineering, material science, and neurosurgery. To bring brain-machine interface and neuromodulation technologies to the clinic, there was widespread collaboration and interdisciplinary training between these experts. The next generation of neuroelectronic interfaces will require yet a larger effort in bridging disparate scientific and engineering fields. Therefore, this GRC on Neuroelectronic Interfaces will bring together basic materials research armed with emerging fundamental neurosciences knowledge, and a multi-disciplinary team of leading experts in cellular neuroscience, brain pathology, neuro-technology and materials science as well as experts from different medical disciplines (for example neurosurgery, hand surgery, internal medicine, orthopedics) in order to discuss emerging strategies for engineering chronically useful and reliable neural interfaces as well as uncover new applications for existing technologies on the frontiers of scientific discovery and strategic pathways for translational research into clinical applications. Related Meeting This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Neuroelectronic Interfaces (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.

Important dates Registrations Opening and Program Available: Tuesday 16 November 2021 Early Bird Registration Deadline: Monday 28 February 2022 Standard Registration Deadline: Wednesday 6 April 2022 Keynote speakers Professor Andrew Rice - Imperial College London Professor Beverly Thorn - University of Alabama Dr Mark Alcock - Queensland Children's Hospital Dr Christine Barry - Flinders University Dr Matthew Bryant - North Queensland Persistent Pain Management Service A/Professor Brett Graham - University of Newcastle Professor Mark Hutchinson - University of Adelaide Professor Steve Kamper - University of Sydney Ms Hayley Leake - University of South Australia A/Professor Suzanne Nielsen - Monash Addiction Research Centre Dr Adrian Traeger - The University of Sydney Plenary Sessions Summary Monday We have a great lineup of plenary speakers for our 2022 Annual meeting. The conference will open with the IASP Global Year plenary lecture on the “global year for translating pain knowledge into practice” from Professor Mark Hutchinson. From a neuroimmunopharmacology lens, Professor Hutchinson will discuss the role that convergence science plays in creating future solutions to the challenge of measuring and mitigating pain. This first plenary session will continue with Professor Beverly Thorn providing perspectives on chronic pain and cognitive-behavioural approaches in highly disadvantaged individuals considering the issues of education, literacy, and disparity, discussing current efforts to overcome these issues. An exciting addition to plenary one is the involvement of One Thing! One Thing is a not-for-profit platform that shares short, informative, free videos to keep busy people up-to-date with pain knowledge. We ask pain speakers to answer: "What's the ‘one thing’ you want people challenged by pain to know?" This year at the 2022 APS ASM, our international plenary speakers will share their ‘one thing’ with you, live on stage! The afternoon plenary will bring together Professor Andrew Rice discussing cannabinoid analgesia and the evidence for benefits and harms before leading into a professional debate on “is medicinal cannabis the next opioid crisis? Perspectives from pain, people and policy”. Medicinal cannabis is a hotly debated topic, often argued by passionate voices with firmly held beliefs. But what does the evidence really say about this product in the pain sector? And what are the political and consumer implications of this debate? This session invites you to join a lively expert panel discussion exploring all sides of medicinal cannabis. Tuesday Day 2 will begin with the Sunderland lecture, where Professor Beverly Thorn will revisit Melzack and Wall’s gate control model of pain and explore its more recent clinical applications in patient pain education and cognitive-behavioural therapy. This framework may help patients use the brain as an ally in chronic pain self-management. Dr Christine Berry will follow with the Tess Cramond lecture on translating pain science to practice for women’s health. We will hear how macrophage-sensory neuron signalling pathways may present targets for new treatment approaches, with a specific case study of a robust mouse model of vulvodynia. The afternoon plenary on the second day will change the perspective to focus on adolescents and young adults with pain. We will hear from Dr Mark Alcock, who will talk about the perspectives of a tertiary interdisciplinary paediatric pain service on the complexity of pain in adolescents and young adults, their needs, the challenges they face when seeking help. Day 2 will conclude with Professor Andrew Rice’s update on diagnosis and clinical assessment of patients with neuropathic pain. Professor Rice will share insights into the new ICD-11 that the WHO officially launched in January 2022, and how this important new resource can augment clinical practice and research. Wednesday The conference’s final day will begin with hearing from Dr Matthew Bryant, who will discuss the gap in health status between Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous Australians, which is unacceptably wide. We then will have Associate Professor Suzanne Nielsen diving into a discussion on the changing nature of prescription opioid-related harms and an update on the impact of recent policy changes, including the rescheduling of codeine and future directions for opioid policy research. The morning session will conclude with our recipient of the 2022 Rising Star award, Dr Adrian Traeger from The Institute of Musculoskeletal Health. He will share his research on the overdiagnosis of low back pain and how the issue of overdiagnosis in health care is a major health challenge globally. The last session of the conference will include the Bonica lecture with Professor Steve Kamper on pain, health and lifestyle. Professor Kamper will discuss if we have solved the numerous obstacles related to bringing together clinical care and support for a healthy lifestyle and if integrated models of care are the way forward. Following will be Associate Professor Brett Graham, who will share updated views of spinal modules that process our sensory world. Times have changed since the original Gate Control Theory. In the advent of several technological advances over the recent decades, scientists have built on this scaffold, revealing highly complex circuits with many more critical elements than first appreciated. Prof Graham will summarise how our understanding of the spinal gate has evolved, the range of opportunities to develop new pain therapies, and better explain the origins of pain to patients and the wider community. Finally, the last plenary will be presented by Ms Hayley Leake, recipient of the 2021 Cops for Kids Clinical Research Grant. She will share her research utilising a novel co-design approach, that engages youth with persistent pain in the process of collaboratively designing social media content, to disseminate key pain science concepts.
