Presentation on molecular mechanisms responsible for pain in multiple myeloma and fibromyalgia, as well as how they can be connected.

Stephanie Mouchbahani-Constance is a third-year PhD student at McGill University in the Department of Physiology studying the molecular mechanisms responsible for sensing pain in the nervous system. Her research involves studying the molecular mechanisms underlying pain caused by venom from the Lionfish, and has worked on projects studying pain hyposensitivity in Christianson Syndrome. She is the recipient of the Vanier Scholarship from the Canadian Institute for Health Research and is one of 3 Canadians invited to attend the 2020 Lindau Nobel Laureate Conference. Stephanie is passionate about understanding how we sense pain, and takes great joy in communicating science and research to the general public.
