Curing Coma

September 09-10, 2020

Curing Coma

The goal of the Curing Coma Campaign is to “change the game” regarding how coma and related disorders of consciousness are diagnosed, treated, and recovered. With its launch in 2019, one of the first goals of the Curing Coma Campaign was to bring together a diverse group of coma scientists, physicians, and implementation experts to advance the field of coma research.

The Neurocritical Care Society (NCS) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) are co-sponsoring a 2-day virtual symposium, “Challenging the Future of Research for Coma and Disorders of Consciousness,” which takes place on September 9-10, 2020. This virtual event is a concrete step in the direction of developing a vision for advancing coma care. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together a diverse and multidisciplinary group of individuals (scientists, clinician-scientists, patient advocacy representatives, and industry partners) to optimize and accelerate the science of recovery of consciousness.

Click here to register for the 2-day virtual symposium. The program can be viewed here.

Three fundamental and overarching areas of inquiry have been identified to lay the next steps to better understand coma states and coma recovery:

  • Endotyping: Developing a better understanding of the different types of coma
  • Biomarkers: Evaluating current tools and their shortcomings in understanding coma and its prognosis
  • Proof of Concept Clinical Trials: Interventional clinical studies to evaluate new treatment protocols

Invited presenters will include leading coma researchers and scientists from around the world, but all interested clinician, scientist, industry and public advocate stakeholders are welcome to register and attend. The proceedings of the summit will be published and will serve as a roadmap for future Curing Coma Campaign scientific efforts for years to come.

Working 2 Walk - 2020

October 22-24 | Virtual Livestream

Working 2 Walk 2020 - First Ever Virtual Symposium!
Unite 2 Fight Paralysis is transitioning its 15th Annual Working 2 Walk Science & Advocacy Symposium to a fully-virtual, livestream meeting on Thursday, October 22nd; Friday, October 23rd; and Saturday, October 24th, 2020!

With the ongoing health risks posed by COVID-19, particularly for the SCI Community, we have decided that an in-person meeting this year would be unwise.

We plan to return to Salt Lake City in 2021 in partnership with our Title Sponsor, the Craig H. Neilsen Rehabilitation Hospital.
