Testimonials

  • I got to know many top neurologists at this meeting that lead to collaborations. This meeting is a very good opportunity to socialize with peers in the field, but also to form a basis for scientific collaboration.
    Ryosuke Takahashi, MD, PhD
    Department of Neurology Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine
  • The Annual Meeting is a great opportunity. It’s smaller and more intimate than some of the other meetings, so you get a chance to meet people, but still have a wide representation from different fields in neurology. It’s an honor to be able to stand in front of a poster and state your case for other great minds in neurology, and in basic science as well.
    Allison Snyder, MD Chief Neurology Resident
    University of Maryland Department of Neurology
