PCO Participates in Neurotrauma 2018 Joint Society Symposium

On August 11-16, 2018, COL Sidney Hinds II, Blast Injury Research PCO, Brain Health Research Program Coordinator, participated in the Neurotrauma 2018 joint society symposium sponsored by the International and National Neurotrauma Societies and AANS/CNS Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care, and held at the Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto, Canada. This was the third joint symposium designed to provide an opportunity to broadly share the most up-to-date scientific and clinical evidence about brain and spinal cord trauma with the neurotrauma research and treatment community. Basic and clinical researchers showcased their work in plenary sessions, podium lectures, and through poster presentations. Researchers from US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) laboratories, Office of Naval Research (ONR), and research performers funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) were included among those presenting their work to colleagues from institutions worldwide. COL Hinds contributed to a poster presented at the conference on ENIGMA: Enhancing Neuroimaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis. PCO participation in this meeting supports the congressionally mandated EA responsibility to promote information sharing and partnerships, to disseminate blast injury research information, and to identify blast injury knowledge gaps.
