  • Jonathan Lifshitz, Ph.D.

    Associate Professor
    Director, Translational Neurotrauma Research Program
    Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital
    The University of Arizona

    The National Neurotrauma Society is a community of scientists and health care providers who care not only for patient quality of life, but the scientific rigor supporting clinical practice and the career development of those interested in the field. My team views that annual symposium as an anchor point in our research to present our findings, reconnect with colleagues, and celebrate science.

  • Grace S. Griesbach, Ph.D.

    National Direct of Clinical Research - Centre for NeuroSkills

    I have always strived to conduct research that will lead to a significant clinic impact. Reminiscing, my interest in translational research evolved within the National Neurotrauma Society, back in the days when it was held in conjunction with the Society for Neuroscience. It was always exciting to see how basic neuroscience concepts could be applied to the research and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury. Since then I have been fortunate to witness the growth of NNS. It is inspiring to see how the society strives to have meaningful novel research while not losing focus on its original concerns.

    University of Utah – Medical Center

    Since early in my career I have viewed the National Neurotrauma Society and its members as pursuing the noblest of causes - to find a cure or effective treatment for the devastation of brain and spinal cord injuries. I have been grateful for tremendous collegiality and encouragement from those affiliated with the NNS and am inspired to work collaboratively with these honorable people for the common good. The NNS provides a culture medium for academic enrichment and for the personal and professional bonds that will be key to curing the terrible conditions we study.

  • Coleen M. Atkins, Ph.D.

    University of Miami Miller School of Medicine

    Being a member of the National Neurotrauma Society has been incredibly beneficial for my research in traumatic brain injury. My favorite perk of membership is the savings for attending the National Neurotrauma Symposium. At this meeting, I connect with collaborators and have the opportunity to present my research to leaders in the neurotrauma field. Every time I attend the meeting, I leave with helpful tips to improve on the methods that I am using in the laboratory.

Mayumi Prins, PhD Professor of Neurosurgery
UCLA Brain Injury Research Center
I worked in the lab during my undergraduate running HPLC samples. I had the rare honor of meeting the mom of an 18yo girl who drove for the first time by herself when she was hit by another car and had severe TBI. Seeing first hand how this young girl’s life was completely changed really affected me and soon after that I started my research on TBI in the developing brain. She was/is my inspiration.
