As in previous years, we are honored to announce that Neurotrauma 2019 will be co-hosted by the National Neurotrauma Society and the American Association Neurological Surgeons/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care. This combination of expertise allows for presentations that integrate state-of-the-art clinical, translational, and basic science data. Share with others what function means to you and hear about cutting edge approaches to assessing and improving function after neurotrauma.

The Scientific Program Committee has put together an exciting symposium comprised of plenary and breakout sessions in which the leading experts will share their up-to-date thoughts, research, and findings on neurotrauma. A central focus of Neurotrauma 2019 will be the highly interactive poster sessions which will stimulate scholarly discussions on the mechanisms, assessments, and treatments for improving function after neurotrauma. Innovative workshops will cover pertinent topics such as writing effective publications and grants, state-of-the-art patient care, conducting rigorous research, improving scientific communication, and use of cutting-edge technologies to accelerate discovery at both the bench and the bedside. CME credits will be provided for the meeting.

Neurotrauma 2019 promises to provide innovative opportunities for learning, mentoring, and collaboration for all attendees. Every attendee from a trainee newly entering the field to the seasoned neurotrauma professionals will discover new information in a scenic and stimulating venue. We look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh!

Educational Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this symposium, all attendees will be able to:

• Articulate research relevant features of biopsychosocial assessment as it applies to the study of TBI and SCI
• Identify how function can uniquely inform their research focus and activities
• Explain how a precision medicine research pipeline may support the pursuit of neuroprotective and neuroreparative treatments
• Discuss controversial issues in the biological characterization of SCI/TBI pathology and function, as well as translation of therapeutic treatments from the laboratory to the clinic
• Identify and network with attendees from the neurotrauma and neurorehabilitation communities to formulate and grow interdisciplinary research teams to advance innovative neurobiological frameworks for study and personalized treatments to the point of patient accessibility for the TBI and SCI communities.

In addition to the learning outcomes for all attendees, at the conclusion of this symposium, junior scientists/trainees will also be able to:
• Identify suitable mentors for their personal and career development
• Connect and engage with TBI and SCI stakeholders to identify and learn about the importance of function focused TBI and SCI research programs
• Increase cultural competency regarding priorities, challenges, biases and needs facing individuals with TBI and SCI related disability
• Reference historical perspectives on the advancement of clinical care and rehabilitation of those with TBI and SCI related disability.
