    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.             ...

    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. At this last meeting, I met a student in Dr. Kathy Saatman’s laboratory who gave me tons of advice on how to use novel object recog...

Ask an expert

Why did you choose to study neurotrauma? How did you find your niche within the field?

NNS member

Candace Floyd, PhD Assistant Professor
University of Alabama at Birmingham
NNS President, 2016-2017
I chose to study Neurotrauma because there are so few pharmacological options for protection, repair, and regeneration of the injured nervous system. As far as a “niche” in some ways that is a moving target. We try to address highly translational questions in CNS injury.
