National Neurotrauma Symposium 2016


Event Date: 

Sunday, June 26, 2016 (All day) to Wednesday, June 29, 2016 (All day)

About the Event: 

Since its inception in 1982, this symposium has served as the premier forum for the exchange of ideas and information related to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI). Due to the strong focus of the meeting to integrate clinical, translational, and basic science neurotrauma-related information, combined with the meeting location in Lexington, KY, the horse capital of the world, this year’s theme is: “The Triple Crown: Advances in Basic Sciences, Pre-Clinical Modeling and Clinical Approaches".

As in previous years, this year’s meeting will be co-hosted by the National Neurotrauma Society and the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care.  This combination of expertise allows for presentations that integrate state-of-the-art clinical, translational and basic science information on the consequences of damage to the nervous system.  Expand your horizons by attending sessions from both societies.  As is typical, the format of the symposium will consist of informative discovery, translational, and clinical sessions and workshops, as well as programs for students and early career investigators. Plenary sessions, workshops, and poster sessions are being planned to focus on topics of current research and practice issues.
A public lecture, patient perspective presentations, and networking opportunities will round out the program.  CME credits will be provided for each day of the meeting.
