The National Neurotrauma Society named this award in honor of Dr. Marmarou in 2010. Today, this award represents the fifth best award in the trainee poster competition.

"Absence of proof is not proof of absence"

Dr. Marmarou was a thought leader in the field of Neurotrauma, in which his scientific exploration of intracranial pressure dynamics in traumatic brain injury changed the clinical management of injury. Well known for his commitment to research on TBI and Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Dr. Marmarou was considered a world authority on fluid dynamics within the brain and spinal cord. His tireless efforts to communicate the results of his scientific studies on the global front earned him an international reputation as an outstanding scholar and scientist.

Dr. Marmarou has been honored for his work by Brazilian, English, French, German, Greek, Japanese, and Turkish Neurosurgical Societies. In particular, his collaborative efforts with Dr. Katsuji Shima, Chairman of Neurosurgery of the National Defense Institute in Japan established global standards for the care and management of intracranial pressure following TBI.

Prior to 2010, this award was known as the National Neurotrauma Society Award.
