Reading Pathological Society – collaborative University of Reading and Royal Berkshire Hospital pain research

Posted on: Thursday, January 25, 2018

Dr Tim Salomons and Dr Deepak Ravindran showcased their current research at the 1735th meeting of the Reading Pathological Society on Wednesday 17th January 2018.


The chronic pain research group is made up of members of the Schools of Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Reading and the Pain Clinic at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, facilitated by the TVCTU. The presentation “Predicting post-surgical pain: how neuroscience can make a difference” was the first collaborative venture presented to the members and was well received with a number of interesting conversations taking place over the curry that followed, courtesy of the Society. With the current drive to establish new joint ventures between the two institutions, this is the first of many new relationships to be presented with the potential for various talks in the future, including around: obesity; colorectal biology; cardiology; radiology; informatics; biomedical engineering and urgent care.


The regular venue of The Old Library at the Royal Berkshire Hospital provided an insight into the history of the hospital and showed off an extensive selection of medical literature.


Future meetings include:


“Secrets from beyond the grave: Life and death at the Royal Naval Hospital”

“Current advances in prostate imagery and surgery”

“What’s new in General Practice?”
