Natcher Conference Center
NIH Building 45
This full, two day event is a forum for scientists from local institutions and organizations to exchange data and ideas that will advance research and treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI).
The theme of this year's Symposium is the "Peripheral Effects of TBI." The keynote and plenary speakers will focus on this topic in order to provide a base from which attendees can build their knowledge. This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Phillip Popovich, Professor and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience, the Ray W. Poppleton Research Designated Chair and Director of the Center for Brain and Spinal Cord Repair at The Ohio State University.
Although the theme of this year's meeting is the "Peripheral Effects of TBI," CNRM will continue to welcome a broad range of TBI related posters and oral presentation topics. These presentation opportunities (poster and oral) for trainees and junior faculty will be a significant format component.
Advance registration is required and ends at 11:59 pm on Monday, February 18th, 2019. Early registration is strongly encouraged. Registration is free to federal, DoD, and CNRM employees. There is a $25 registration fee for non-federal and non-CNRM attendees.
The uniform of the day for military attendees. Civilian conference attire is business casual.
Hosted by the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (CNRM). CNRM is a collaborative intramural federal program involving the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health, and implemented by the Uniformed Services University. CNRM was developed to bring together the expertise of clinicians and scientists across disciplines to catalyze innovative approaches to TBI research.
