American Neurological Association Annual Meeting
The 140th Annual Meeting promises to offer scientific symposia covering the latest research in the fields of neurology and neuroscience. This year’s Annual Meeting will offer scientific symposia on causes and triggers of multiple sclerosis, the life and death of axons in neurological disease, harnessing plasticity: technologies for motor and cognitive neurorehabilitation, evolving concepts in prion biology, controversies in stroke therapeutics, plus Special Interest Group Symposia on 17 different subspecialties.
In addition, there will be a symposium titled, Circuits and Circuit Disorders: Approaches to Neuromodulation, led by Mahlon R. DeLong, the 2014 Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award to take place the evening before the Annual Meeting. This is a unique opportunity to experience a first-rate scientific discussion on Neuromodulation.
Other engaging sessions include:
- Two interactive poster sessions
- Professional development courses for early career, mid- and senior-level and department chairs.
- Interactive Lunch Workshops on a variety of cutting edge topics such as stem cell therapy, ethical dilemmas in neurology, novel brain MRI and the human connectome, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and global health issues in diagnostics and therapeutics.
- Women of the ANA luncheon on managing work-life balance featuring a panel of local academic neurology professionals who will discuss their paths to having a both a successful career and fulfilling family life.
And much, much more.
