NNS 2024


Join us for NNS 2024!

It is our distinct pleasure to invite you to attend the 41st annual National Neurotrauma Society Symposium, to be held in San Francisco, CA on June 9 – 12th, 2024, at the San Francisco Hilton Union Square. As in previous years, the NNS will co-host this meeting with the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma & Critical Care.

Our theme this year is “Future Classics of Neurotrauma”. As we move past our first 40 years of neurotrauma research, we hope that you will take this meeting as an opportunity to look at the breakthroughs in technology and science that will become the landmarks of future neurotrauma work. Holding this meeting in San Francisco, the hub of technology advancements, we believe that this year’s meeting will highlight the great strides that we have made in our field, how we are using novel technology to better approach diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for brain and spinal cord injury, and demonstrate the strong foundation for future research and clinical application that we are building.

We have assembled a fantastic group of program committee members and volunteers, representing a wide range of expertise in preclinical and clinical research in brain and spinal cord trauma, as well as a wealth of diversity in career stages and backgrounds. This committee is well suited to provide a fresh and compelling program across a wide spectrum of research areas.

In addition to cutting edge science, we will also offer numerous opportunities for networking, scientific exchange, advocacy, and training of our junior scientists and clinicians. We are continuing to build on programs that were successful in previous years, such as the Local Scholars Program and multiple mentoring activities. We’re excited to have these opportunities available for our attendees, and we hope to see everyone take advantage of the diverse range of programming that the 2024 meeting will bring.

We look forward to seeing everyone in San Francisco!
