    A message from The NNS Membership Committee

    The NNS Membership committee is seeking volunteer panelists for the upcoming NNS Virtual Round Table Discussion Series. The NNS round table discussions are an opportunity for members to virtually get together to examine issues as they relate to clinical/pre-clinical traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI) with panelists who are experts in the designated meeting topic across various academic and career stages. Last year, topics included "MR Imaging in Experimental and Clinical Neurotrauma: Tips, Advice, and Live Q&A" and "Sex Differences in Experimental Neurotrauma: Tips, Advice, and Live Q&A".

    Panelists are encouraged to highlight their research and expertise as it pertains to the topic. As such, panelists may present a brief presentation to showcase research findings, technical methods, and/or alternative perspectives. Additionally, panelists are encouraged to participate in discussions and a live Q&A where participants can ask questions. We are calling for volunteer panelists for the upcoming topics:

    1. The use of sham controls in TBI and SCI preclinical research

    2. Alternative careers in Neurotrauma

    All members interested in volunteering as a panelist now or for future discussions please fill out the attached google form

    By Grace S. Griesbach, NNS22 Program Chair

    After a long hiatus from in-person NNS events, it’s my distinct pleasure to invite you to attend the 39th Annual National Neurotrauma Symposium, to be held in person in Atlanta Georgia on June 26-29, 2022.

    As we have in previous years, the National Neurotrauma Society will once again co-host this meeting with the American Association Neurological Surgeons/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma & Critical Care. The symposium will take place at the Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel in downtown Atlanta. The theme for this symposium is “The Evolution of Neurotrauma Research, Past Present & Future,” and the meeting will focus on showcasing the greatest achievements in the neurotrauma field and how these have influenced emerging knowledge and tools to improve neurotrauma research and clinical care.

    Like me, I know you’re eager to meet face to face with friends and colleagues again in a safe and conscientious way. In the coming months, we will be releasing more information about the symposium and the networking opportunities that will be on offer in Atlanta. Don’t forget to log in or create an account at and ensure your contact info is up to date so that you’ll receive all the latest updates.

    I hope to see you in person next June!
