Speaker Spotlight

Kevin J. Tracey, MD

Kevin J. Tracey, MD and “The Future of Bioelectronic Medicine”


Kevin J. Tracey is the CEO and President of the Feinstein Institute, a leader in the study of the molecular basis of inflammation, and is widely considered the founder of the rapidly advancing field of bioelectronic medicine.

This month, the Wall Street Journal features Dr. Tracey and his work on “The Future of Biolectronic Medicine,” which are sure to be built on his recent advances in stimulation for inflammatory disease like Rheumatoid Arthritis. The opportunities for bioelectronic medicine in the treatment of pain, many serious chronic conditions, inflammatory disease and immune disorders are great, and Dr. Tracey is leading the charge.

We are honored to welcome him to the stage for the Fourth Annual Lindahl Lecture, immediately following Napa Pain Conference programming on Saturday, August 27, 2016.
