National Capital Area TBI Research Symposium 2020


March 5-6, 2020
Natcher Conference Center
Building 45, National Institutes of Health 
Bethesda, Maryland

This full, two day event is a forum for scientists, clinicians, junior investigators, and students from local institutions and organizations to exchange data and ideas that will advance research and the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI). 

The theme of this year's Symposium is "2020: A Vision for the Future of TBI Research." The keynote and plenary speakers will explore varying aspects of this theme to provide a base from which attendees can build their knowledge. This year's Symposium will feature dual Keynote presentations given by Paul Thompson, Ph.D., University of Southern California, and Emily Dennis, Ph.D., University of Utah. Dr. Thompson’s and Dr. Dennis’ presentations will discuss their work within the Enhancing Neuro Imaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis (ENIGMA) Consortium. The ENIGMA Consortium uses large sets of brain imaging and genetic data to better understand brain structure, function, and disease. 

Irrespective of the meeting’s theme, the Symposium will continue to welcome a broad range of TBI-related poster and oral presentations and will feature an array of TBI-related working lunch sessions. 

Advance registration is required and will close at 11:59 pm on Thursday, February 20, 2020.
There is a $50.00 registration fee for Symposium attendees. 

Suggested attire is business casual for civilian attendees and the uniform of the day for military attendees. 

The NCA TBI Research Symposium is hosted by the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine (CNRM). CNRM is a collaborative intramural federal program involving the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health, and implemented by the Uniformed Services University. CNRM was developed to bring together the expertise of clinicians and scientists across disciplines to catalyze innovative approaches to military TBI research.
