Trainee Research Exhibition

The National Neurotrauma Society Presents:

Pittsburgh Community Advancements in Assistive Technology

Pittsburgh Community Advancements in Precision Medicine and Research Engagement

Pittsburgh Community Advancement in Neuroscience Training on Neurotrauma

Trainee Supported Neurotrauma and Neurorehabilitation Research Exhibition

The University of Pittsburgh has a robust neuroscience training community, with a vibrant undergraduate neuroscience program and graduate program. In addition, neurotrauma and neurorehabilitation researchers here at the University of Pittsburgh partner with researchers from many different areas, including radiology, rehabilitation sciences, psychology, human genetics, public health and more. These collaborations provide rich research training opportunities for students at all levels of training at the University of Pittsburgh to get involved in meaningful neurotrauma and neurorehabilitation research.

As a part of the National Neurotrauma Society’s Community Event, several research trainees from the University of Pittsburgh participating in the national meeting will share their latest scientific findings in an open poster session during our community event. Visitors will have a chance to interact with trainees, learn about their science, and discuss how they got involved in their research program and research topic.

Our goal is to help educate the community on the rich research and training opportunities in the in the neurosciences at the University of Pittsburgh and to understand how local trainees are “giving back” to our local communities through their hard work and dedication to studying important research topics that impact individuals living with traumatic brain injury.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Provide the local Pittsburgh Community an opportunity to interact with Neurotrauma and Neurorehabilitation research trainees about their research findings
  2. Support local Pittsburgh Community middle and high school student interest in neuroscience medical science and applied research areas such as Neurotrauma and Neurorehabilitation research.
  3. Have trainees share their personal stories and field questions from the local community on their personal experiences as a research trainee.
