The TEAM Neurotrauma – Visiting International Scholar Award (TEAM-VISA) was established to promote international networking opportunities, and to advance the early careers of women Neurotrauma researchers.
The Award provides an opportunity for international collaboration by subsidizing both travel to the National Neurotrauma Symposium and a brief period of research training/collaboration in a sponsor’s laboratory. This award supports the mission of WiNTR to promote international gender equality in neurotrauma research to learn new skills or techniques pertinent to their research project.
